Been lurking here for a while and finally decided to join. Proud as can be of our 7 Barred Rock Pullets (hopefully all seven, I'm a little doubtful about Madge!). I grew up with chickens back in the day, this is my husband's first time with chickens and he's loving it. 2 Pembroke Welsh Corgis, 3 rescue cats, and the "girls"- Madge, Cecillia, Rowland, Virginia, Victoria, Maggie, and Elizabeth. Thanks for all the help you've already given, the experience and the expertise here are fantastic!
