    Hello all!
    I'm new here... got to jump into chicken keeping last summer when we bought a house with existing coop/run and the seller let us keep 3 of his hens. We've since lost two of those hens to a raccoon attack (hard-learned lessons...) in the fall. The remaining hen is an Easter Egger, perhaps 2 yrs old? She is laying every other day. We got chicks in October that are now 13 weeks old. They consist of 2 silver laced wyandottes, 2 red stars, 1 easter egger (Pippa), 1 barred rock (Penguin), 1 leghorn, and 1 silver spangled hamburg (Hamburglar) who is probably a roo, but is the quietest, shyest chicken I've ever met. I'm trying to integrate the older EE with the "littles," but it hasn't been going well. My post on that topic is here:

    Looking forward to meeting you all and your flocks!
