Hello All!! New to chicken farming, but raised lots of ringneck pheasants growing up. I went big right away this past year with 150 mixed breed chickens and have been holding 60 laying hens with 6 roosters over winter. It's been quite a run so far, but I haven't lost any yet that I didn't intend to lose. Got eggs coming out of my ears, but that was the whole point in the first place. Lots of information on this site so I thought I'd join the fray and help out if I could. I'd like to say thank you to all those more experienced producers who have been so forthcoming with helpful information for us less experienced folks.
