I'm a new chicken "momma" I suppose. Got my first 9 hens this spring, 2 reds and 6 tetras. Then a couple months ago I received my rooster from a coworker who had bought 3 in a straight run pick. All is going well, eggs galore. I've come here often looking for tips and finally decided to create an account. I live in central Ohio so I'm in the midst of preparing for winter which, in my case, probably isn't going to be all that fun.
