    Hello everyone! We are a family of "backyard homesteaders" ;) and I am excited to learn more as we go along. We recently finished up our backyard coop, began our seedlings indoors with a grow light, and planted a few fruit trees!

    Thanks!
    We currently have 3 layers that were gifted (Two 1 year old RIRs and a Wyandotte ). I am hoping to pick up two EE pullets this week and we have a few chicks in the brooder :)

    You are most welcome. It seems that chicken maths has you firmly in its grasp! - good for you I say [​IMG]

    Your little flock is growing, that's great! I'm a RIR and EE fan myself (haven't had Wyandottes). Love the spunkiness of the RIR and of course, the beautiful eggs of the EE's.

    Good luck with your birds and homesteading.

    It's nice to have you here!
