Hi, I just recently joined BackYard Chickens but have been reading and finding information through the site for about a year now. We are raising our first flock and really enjoying our chickens! We got our first day old chicks at the beginning of March and quickly added three more. We have 1 Buff Rock/Ameracauna Rooster and 6 hens: 2 Buff Orpingtons, 2 Barred Rocks, 2 Easter Eggers. We live on several acres and our chickens are free ranging but are really good about coming in to the coop in the evening. I'm looking forward to learning more! Thanks!
