    Hi. I am glad I found you guys. I am new to chickens. I bought three little chicks last spring on a whim (not a recommended method I'm sure).

    I have two Black Wyandotte Hens and a white hen that the sign said was a Plymouth Rock White but she looks nothing like the pictures I have seen of those.

    I have been having a blast. They have a snug little coop for night time and free range in my backyard during the day. They eat laying crumbles and lots of table scraps. In fact I found this forum by googling for information about what scraps would be safe and I found a chart here. Thanks

    I think one of my black hens is exceptionally pretty and looks very close to the 'breed picture' so I might try showing at our county fair later this month.

    Thanks in advance for all the advice. [​IMG]
