Hi, We are very new to having backyard chickens: got our hens in August from a person who was moving out of state and needed to re-home her hens. We have 5 currently: a Delaware, Golden Laced Wyandotte, a Barred Rock, a Speckled Sussex and an Americauna. They are great layers and we are really enjoying them. We also have an elderly dog and 5 cats. this is a great website with so much great and friendly information! Very glad I've joined.
