I first started raising chickens when the people we bought our place from sweetend the deal with to red and white chickens, we think they are at least two years old. I have a million questions? I just got 3 more that are 6 months old (we think). I think one of the new ones may be an easter egger? Why did the new chickens come with food that looks like oatmeal? We didn't put them together, should we? I have to giant redish brown ones are the Rhode Island Reds, will they be mean?
