    Hi! My name's Kayla, I'm almost 21 and bought my first house almost a year ago. I have three little acres right outside of Wichita and am the proud owner three horses, two australian shepherds, a stray cat that has adopted us, and five chickens!

    I'm brand new to chickens, I bought these 5 (well, bought 6 [​IMG]) about 5 months ago, and this is my very first experience. To be honest, it took about three months for me to even start liking them LOL. They are Rhode Island Red's and I love them to death now, they are a hoot to have around.

    I'm already ready to expand! I've been looking into other breeds, just for a variety, and am considering Plymouth Rock's, does anybody have any input? Does it harm anything to have multiple breeds together? I'm interested in at some point adding a rooster and hatching some of my own, would that pose any problems?

    Nice to meet everyone! If you have any suggestions, i'm all ears!

    Have fun with those chickens! I have several different breeds for my laying hens. Incubating and hatching is pretty darn addicting. Beware!
