Hi, This is my second adventure in raising chickens. I live in Southern Maine. I am a music education major who loves animals. My boyfriend and I just ordered six new girls: 2 Rhode Island Red's, 1 Barred Rock, 1 Black Sex Link, 1 Red Sex Link, and an Ameraucana. They will be ready for us on June 25, in the meantime I'm spending all of my time on BYC to make sure we do everything right. Lauren M.
