    Hello,
    My name is James. I am from Arlington, Texas.
    Just recently was given two chickens from my in-laws of in-laws. I have no experience what so ever in chicken raising. I think I have a Rhode Island Red, the other I'm not so sure.

    Welcome to BYC [​IMG] Stop by the Learning Center. There is some great info there for beginners and more experienced chicken keepers. Have you got a coop for your hens? There are some nice big and small coop designs in the Coops section. For breed identification post some pics of her in the What Breed Or Gender is This? section. Enjoy the site!
