    Hi all! We'll be moving in March and I'll finally be able to start chickens. My family has been raising chickens for a number of years but now I get my own flock! Looking forward to interacting with folks on the boards.

    Hi All!
    Thanks for the welcome! As for breeds, we are going to start our flock with Barred Rocks. I've always liked Wyandottes as well. I'm looking forward to ordering a mystery hatchery box next year!

    Barred Plymouth Rocks are nice, I have 3 of them. Never had a Wyandotte but they get good reviews. You'll have fun no matter what! [​IMG]

    Hooray for you! Barred Rocks were among our first girls, too, and you couldn't ask for better birds. [​IMG] Those two are simply precious. I've also got three Wyandottes, all different color variations, and they are a pretty good breed as well, though not as friendly. You've made some great choices!
