    Hi all! I'm new and figured I'd introduce myself!

    My name is Jeff, and I'm from Kansas. I'm currently working my way through Vet Tech school, and eventually Vet school!
    I used to raise poultry for several years, but I took a break for a while. Now I have decided to pick it back up, as it has always been a favorite hobby of mine.
    I have had banties and standard hens, ranging from cochin's to barred rocks. And of course, they all had names. :)

    I bought 25 random hens from someone who wanted to get rid of them. They will eventually be added to my current flock of 6 hens and 1 rooster. A majority of these are mixed hens and old, aside from one lone barred rock hen.

    This is what I have so far:

    8 Rhode Island White Hens
    6 Rhode Island Red Hens
    4 White Orpington Hens
    2 Black Australorp Hens
    2 Black Sex-Link Hens
    2 Araucana Hens
    1 Wyandotte Hen

    I will eventually post photo's, because I'm not sure if these breeds are correct.
