Hi! I joined last week after reading a lot of info to help me with my chickens especially how to have them survive the heat we are experiencing (temps over 100 degrees!). I've never raised chickens before so this is all new to me. I have 6 Rhode Island Reds - all pullets (I think - I don't know when I'll know for sure). I'm not sure how old they are but I got them the first of May and they had some wing feathers started already. I appreciate all the info on this site and maybe someday I'll know enough to contribute as well.
