Good day to you all! I used to raise chickens in high-school for FFA and left them there when I went to college. Then, not too long ago my old teacher contacted me to see if I wanted them back otherwise they''d be killed (they aren't the originals, but some of them were bred from my original chickens), so now I have a group of chickens that I am raising on my own for the first time. I finally decided to join this site after I found so many answers to questions I had already on here, and I am so grateful that there are so many people offering advice here. I cannot wait to become a more active member and share stories of my sweeties! (I have some White Leghorns, and some Rhode Island Reds. I also have some that are mixed between the two after I hatched some shortly after buying a rooster to add to my flock....reason being there was not a rooster with them when I got them back and I am free ranging them). Hope you all have much luck with your flocks this year!
