    Good evening all!
    Just wanted to pop in and introduce myself. I'm new to keeping chickens and found this site during several of my "how to" searches. Figured I'd should join since I'm sure I'll have a ton of questions soon!
    We currently have 5 birds. 3 I believe are Leghorn hens and one each Silkie Hen and Rooster. They're currently housed in a pallet coop my husband built but we're thinking of building another soon.
    We'd like to get more in the future. We just recently moved from a city-style area to a more rural home with some land to play with :D
    I can't wait to see what this site has to offer, it has already answered a few of my chicken questions :]

    It sounds like you have a nice flock already! If you want to be certain as to what breed/cross your birds are, you can post in the What Breed or Gender section: What Breed Or Gender is This?

    Good luck with your flock!
