    Hello! My name is Rigo I'm new at this of breeding chickens . It's a great hobby and I enjoy it very much. I have 2 Leghorns, 1 Rhode Island Red, 2 roosters & 2 hens that I don't really know what they are because they don't grow very much (miniature).

    Hi Rigo,
    I've had my chickens for about 7 months, and they are a lot of fun, with a bit of work. My 4 hens are all laying now, and I'm getting 3 to 4 eggs a day. The most important item in setting up, for most of us, is to provide an enclosure that is predator proof. In my neighborhood that includes coyotes, racoons, hawks, dogs and rats. Other than that it is just a matter of food water cleaning and comfort. My girls are RIR, barred rock,Americauna, and comet hens, all four laying slightly different colors of eggs. Anyway, have fun and I wish you a lot of luck.

    Welcome from Eastern Wa. The small chickens are likely to be bantams. If you can post pictures people will be able to tell you what breed they are.
