My husband and I inherited 2 hens and a rooster that were part of the deal when we bought our farmhouse this time last year. Since then, I have been lurking around the message boards collecting knowledge from its wonderful members. Today I finally decided to join! In the past year we have adopted a few girls going through henopause, braved the craziest winter, raised a brood of 16 chicks, lost 6 of our beloved babies to a predator, and just recently added 9 more little ones to our flock. We started with 3, and are currently at 18 fluffy butts with no plans on stopping. I'm wondering where the best place would be to post pictures of some of our newest babies? They look like mixes, but I would love some help with ID. For fun, here are a few of my favorite chicken photos so far.
