Hello Everyone my wife and I are brand new to raising chickens. we were very excited to welcome our three rhode reds a week ago and have been outside in the cold Indiana weather being entertained by their daily routines and quarks!! we live inside the city limits but have almost a half acre which includes their house in our 900 sq ft garden. very excited about beginning our new adventure just thought we would say hello. hopefully ill figure out how to post pics of our lovely ladies Amelia, Margaret and Dave! Yes Dave the hen its along story but always brings a smile to someones face and that to us is what its about them being happy and us too!
