Hello, I'm Jessie and new to raising chickens I got my first three back in July (barred rock,RIR, & a Easter egger) and then two more in august. (Lavender&buff orpingtons) Unfortunately I lost one to what I'm pretty sure was a hawk . Then I purchased a gorgeous golden laced Wyandotte. I added on to the run last weekend and I plan on adding more nest boxes next weekend I'm totally addicted now. If only my girls would start laying I think there going to make me wait until spring. This is going to be the longest winter ever!
