    Hi everyone. I have been a member for a few weeks and just saw this thread and thought I would introduce myself. We live in the country and have always liked to have a small group of chickens. Five or six max. Just enough for eggs for us. Since I am now retired we have jumped into the deep end and now have 27 Red Sex Links 26 hens and one Roo. The roo is not a RSL. Somehow an odd one got in our order. I sent the hatchery a picture & they believe it is a Dark Cornish. Whatever he is, he is more than welcome. [​IMG]. They will be 19 weeks old this Wednesday and we started getting eggs 2 days ago.

    Other than chickens we enjoy working around home, camping and enjoying life to the fullest each and every day. We thank the Lord for each and every day.
