Hi there! My name is Salena and this year in February our family added some chickens to our family. We raised them from baby chick. Although we have had many ups and downs(sadly lost 2 chickens) We are very happy to have a flock of chickens to take care of. Our flock consists of 2 Ameruacanas, 1 Cochin, 1 Rhode Island Red, and 1 Leghorn. We also have a Rooster to take care of the girls. Our Red and 1 Ameraucana are laying eggs daily and we will never go back to store bought after enjoying farm fresh eggs! This forum has been a huge help in answering many questions lately so I realized that I needed to make it "official" and actually create a profile. I look forward to learning so much more about taking care of chickens and getting much needed advice from those who have much more experience than myself!
