After months of reading and learning much, I finally registered. This community is great. I started with a mixed bunch-2 white rocks, 2 RI reds,2 black australorps,2 Lt brahmas, 2 gold laced wynandottes , 2 silver laced wyandottes (sort of an ark thing) ,and they are great fun. Now ready to go chicken crazy and start incubating for colored eggs next week. Thanks to all who post your knowledge.COCK-a-DOODLE-DOOO!
