    Hello everyone! I am so excited to find this forum! I am a new backyard chicken enthusiast and I LOVE MY LADIES!!!!

    I just got them on June 2015 as pullets. Man were they scrawny and little! We fit all four into a very SMALL dog carrier for the trip home! I have Miss Elsa, a Buff Organton, Miss Jane, a Rhode Island Red, Miss Mario Zelda (named by my great grandson who LOVES Mario and is only 5) she is a beautiful Australorp, and last but not least Miss Peaches who is a beauty of a Silver Wyandotte! They all have now developed their PECKING order and cute personalities! I had no idea this would be such fun! My hubby just helped me winterize their home for the winter in Charlotte, NC. They are not laying yet which I don't understand but I still love them! I look forward to all of you who love your birds sharing all your info with me! I NEED your knowledge share!

    Have a great week and we shall CLUCK together soon!

    Gramzie of Charlotte, NC

    Did you put golf balls in the nest boxes, so they get the idea that's where eggs should go.
