    Hi, my name is Heather and I'm from central Kansas.

    I got a dozen chicks this past spring.

    Never had chickens before.

    They are a HOOT!

    Just wanted to say hello! [​IMG]

    [​IMG] from middle Tennessee! You are up awful early this morning! Me too...but I have to go to work! Yuk! Would much rather stay home and work on my chicken coop. I got my chickens this last spring also! I have been having fun with them all summer...but I am ready to get some eggs! I bought 12 sexed chicks, 6 RIR's and 6 Buff O's, but somehow a roo snuck in the bunch, so I have 11 hens. I hope Rudy Roo (he is the only one I named as he is the only one I can recognize [​IMG]) turns out to be a good rooster that protects his girls and doesn't flog me! If he turns into one of those sneaky attack ninja roos, he will be turned into a pot of chicken and dumplings! So far he is ok, but he is only 13 weeks old, so...we'll see! Good luck with your birds!
