    Hey nei
    hey! So glad to find this. It's all new to us! Our second year with chickens and loving them! First year with bees and ducks...both slightly more complicated than we expected.

    This is my first year with my own chickens. Parents always had some. So I had a general idea on how to care for them. What kind of chickens do you have? I got some Black Copper Marans (From a breeder) and some Amerecauna (Easter eggers from TSC).

    I raise FBCM and currently have 40+. I love that breed. Wonderful birds.

    I bought 17 BCM from this couple and they threw in 2 splashes for free. They didnt want to have only two little babies by themselves. Bought the six Americana/EE pullets from TSC same day. Lost one BCM and one of the Amer. at different times. They are 10 weeks old now. I see 11 roosters. Trying to see what characteristics are most important/worst so I know which ones go to freezer camp.
