Hello all. My family and I are new to the raising of chickens idea, so we went out and did a bit of research. We are now the proud owners of 12 chickens. 5 white leghorns 5 brown leghorns and 2 speckled Sussex. We look forward to the experience and joy that comes with it. I know my kids are happy as all get out. SO here's to hoping and learning from others and this site.
