    Hi! I'm new to this site. Every time I did a search for something concerning my chickens, I ran across BackyardChickens, so I thought this must be the place to be. I live with my husband and 3 children near Springfield, Missouri and we are new to chicken farming. We got our first flock of 10 Buff Orpingtons in March, then added 3 Barred Rock Hens, 2 Americaunas, 1 Americauna rooster, and 5 Rhode Island Reds that aren't quite laying yet but will be soon. We bought 16 chicks at chick days (one died so we have 15 now) which will soon be big enough to join the older chickens. Two of our Buffs have also died from an illness. Now we are on our first incubation with an LG incubator our neighbor loaned us to see if it worked because he had 2 failed hatches. Looking forward to getting to know you!
