Hello. I am fairly new at keeping chickens. We got our chicks in May and I just got an adult chicken yesterday. I have a light Brahma. I actually had 2, but my favorite chick turned out to be a rooster, so we took him to the family farm, where he can crow to his hearts content. I also have two Australorps, and a Ameracauna. None are laying yet. Then yesterday I got a Barred rock that a friend couldn't keep. She is laying. So it's been a little adventure for us. My 3 daughters just love them. They are used to chickens due to the family farm, but they are much more comfortable now with them.
