We're not new to chickens, just new to the forum. We have 4 Barred Rock hens: Doris, Eileen, Eunice and Helga. We also just bought 3 RIR peeps and one more Barred Rock peep today. We love our critters and are working on expanding our entire farm little by little. I'm looking forward to meeting others who share my animal enthusiasm. ____________ Katie, busy mama at Spanked Moose Farm: 1 pony, 1 goat, 1 dog, 8 chickens, 3 kids, and 1 amazingly loving husband.
