    Hello my name is Alex, my family had laying hens while I grew up and now my wife and I are in our own home with our daughter and we have our own flock of sex link hens. We have 5 bovan Browns a year old laying beautifully, 7 hyline brown pullets 21 weeks just started laying two weeks ago and we just picked up 12 more RIR hybrid meat/laying hens last night for a total of 24. We are from Vancouver bc Canada, and proud of it ! Thanks for all the helpful material so far and in advance with the help I'm sure to receive !
