    Hello! We are from Central Minnesota and have jumped on the backyard chicken bandwagon, as of 2 weeks ago. We purchased 8 chicks from our local feed store. We have 2 Bared Rocks, 2 Rhode Island Reds, 2 Amberkinks & 2 Amarucana. We’re super excited to continue on this crazy adventure!

    Thanks! We sure do, and are hoping they turn out to be great egg layers, too!!

    Yes. I have a couple Barred Rocks and an easter egger which is pretty much an Amerucana and all three are fantastic layers.
