    Hi! Glad to be here!

    I first raised chickens with my then fiance 15 years ago, only to stop when foxes and coons got our flock. We got married and are raising a family, and last year, we promised our kids chickens of their own.

    My chickens are 2 to 2 1/2 months old, 22 hens and a big Jersey Giant roo named Tiny. Sadly, we've lost three hens over the past couple of weeks due to a hawk that's targeted our pen. We're now working on making our pen, which had webbing above it, 100 percent hawk proof.

    I have Americanas, Buff Orpingtons, white leghorns, White Rocks, Black Australorps, Jersey Giants, Rhode Island Reds, Barred Rocks, and a Golden Comet.
