    Hi all,
    We are Whit and Eileen from Mississippi and we are new to backyard chickens. We're looking at the Rhode Island Reds and are super excited to see your website. I guess we'll spend the next month or so researching online and talking to folks around the area and then by Spring we'll have committed and bought the chickens.

    We look forward to reading your tips and tricks :)

    Hi there neighbors! I too am from Mississippi. It hasn't been a year yet since I became the proud owner of a flock of chickens. Joining BYC is the best thing you can do....so much valuable advice from everyone. Welcome to BYC and good luck with your chicks.
