Hello to all from a very wintry Maine. I have had my hens for about 2 1/2 years and love them ! We have 10 hens, a mixture of Golden Comets, Rhode Island Reds and Americaunas. I found out about BackyardChickens while browing through the internet and just loved the site. The hens are our only pets and amazingly my husband may just enjoy them as much or more than I do!!!
