Hello all, I'm new here, and I just wanted to say hi. My wife and I and our six kids live in northeast Kansas. We are pretty new at raising chickens, as we just got our first chicks this last March. We have 18 hens and three roosters. Breeds include barred rock, silver laced wyandotte, easter eggers, and cinnamon queen. We have found the chickens to be great fun, and the kids love them. There is a ton of information here, and I can't wait to learn from all of the informative people here. Thanks, and have a great day!!!
