    Hello chicken friends. We are brand new into the backyard chicken life stye and are enjoying it very much. Right now we 7 hens and 1 rooster. 3 Black Barred (one is the rooster), 3 Rhode Island Reds, and 2 Golden Buffs. All are 6 weeks old except the Rooster (King David) which is about 8 weeks. We have had them for about 4 weeks now and just got the coop up and the chickies moved in yesterday. The ultimate goal is to eventually 100% free range them after they get acclimated to the new coop. We are set up on 3.5 acres in Citra Fl were we also have a small aquaponics farm.I cannot wait to get to know you all on here and learn and hopefully someday share some of my experience with newcomers such as myself.
