Hello I have been entertaining the thought of raising chickens and have done some research. I just bought a few Black Cochin Chickens I believe they are bantams. These are to get me into the world of chickens. I've had them a little less than a week and I must say I'm hooked. I hope that I can find enough information to make my flock grow. By spring I'm hoping to expand to 25 to 30 bigger egg laying chickens. Thanks for your time and I hope to hear from all of you soon.
