Hello everyone! My family and I are new to raising chickens. We just received our first chicks just a week and a half ago. We have 5 Rhode Island Reds and 5 Speckled Sussex. So far it has been so much fun watching our little ladies as they each start to develop their own little personalities. So far anytime we've had a question, either about our girls or their coop that we're building, backyard chickens has helped us out.
