    Hi there! I was recommended this site from a friend and it seems super helpful! I live in NC in a very small town. Grew up in the city and since moving to the "hills" about 8 years ago, we decided to get 6 chickens (and 2 ducks) this year. We have 6 bantams that are 10 weeks old, pretty sure 6 are roosters[​IMG]. I hope to learn a lot here as a first time bird owner! Thanks in advance for any and all help :)
