Hiya everybody! I've been kind of lurking around getting information for a while. Finally got my girls on Thursday night, and now that they are here I thought I should join and stop lurking haha. These are my first chickens, and I've wanted chickens since I was a little kid in the city. Only have three so far (but it's a start right??) and can already tell I need at the very least 3 more (hopefully some araucanas and marans!) I have my girls inside the mudroom just off the kitchen. I figured this way I could manage their heat and light and keep a close eye on them to help me get through my first learning winter. They are red sex links, white rock/RIR and very very sweet. I knew chickens had personalities but I had no idea how STRONG those personalities are. I'm perpetually amused and just love them to pieces. Looking forward to learning everything I can and talking to people who don't think I'm as crazy as my family does right now for being so over the moon about my birds.
