    Hi everyone Im new to BYC.

    I have always wanted to start a small farm even as a child. My boyfriend and I have recently bought 4 rhode island reds and 1 pekin chicks from the local hardware store. They were unsexed. Im so excited to watch them grow and start laying eggs. We are hoping to have atleast one rooster so we can have more chicks.

    I am fairly new to raising poultry. I was raised around horses. However my boyfriend's family had perdue chicken houses so he knows a little about chickens. However he is more familiar with cows and goats. We do have friends who have raised chickens for some time.

    Someday I would like to have more chickens, ducks, horses, dairy and angus cows, hogs, and goats.

    I would love any advice and feedback.
