New here. I have had my small flock of 3 hens (1 RIR, 1 Black Australorp and 1 Black Sexlink) and 1 rooster (RIR) since April. We bought them at Tractor supply, my husband built a brooder box and then a coop and run. This is our first step towards homesteading. We plan to get a piglet this year. Slow and steady.
