Hello everyone! I am so excited to be on this forum! I have already read a wealth of information before I ever joined. You guys rock with your advice! My guy and I adopted two pullets about 3 months ago. I named them Rue (a Rhode Island Red) and Betty (a White Leghorn). They started laying two weeks ago and have become the sweetest girls! They love to follow me around and talk to me while I work outside. My guy decided that he wanted more egg layers so he contacted someone local and we ended up buying 26 two week old chicks. Yes...I said 26! Lol They are now 4.5 weeks old. We bought them straight run so now it's a waiting game to distinguish our pullets from our cockerels. We have Ameraucanas (EE), French Black Copper Marans, Buff Brahmas, and Silver Laced Wyandottes. I know we can't keep the Roos and that breaks my heart. I will try and find them good homes....I promise. My guy on the other hand wants to find them a place on the dinner table. I go into their coop and sit in a chair for two hours everyday. It's my quiet time and they are so fun to watch! Two FBCM love to sit on my shoulder and in my lap already....and I think they are Roos anyways, I'm now the crazy chicken lady and I'm glad I can share my adventures and questions with my fellow chicken lovers!
