Hi all, new to the forum, but only sort of new to chickens. We live out in the country on a few acres. I had a trio of chickens that I ADORED about 6 years ago. (Buff Orphington mixes of some sort I believe) Sadly, they were murdered by what I think was a weasel. It's taken me this many years to even think about chickens again because I was so horrified and upset. Anyways. A new coop and run has been build and it's just waiting to be occupied. I REALLY want some Jersey Giants, but they're hard to find around here. I prefer the bigger chicken breeds for some reason. Went to a Bird Swap in Kankakee, IL this morning and was very disappointed, nothing good to pick from at all. Anyways, nice to meet you all, great site!
