    I'm so glad I found this site, I love to read stories from other chicken owners and learn more tips on what to do or what not to do with my chickens.I have 6 chickens now and am looking forward to getting a few chicks this spring to make my flock a bit bigger! I am always looking for new ideas for my chickens.

    I have 1 Barred Rock, 1 Black Australorp, 1 Buff Orpington, 3 Rhode Island Reds. We got them from a friend, he got them in March of 2014, along with 7 others. By last summer he figured out he didn't really want that many and as we were talking one day he said if I was interested I could get 6 chickens from him. So in August of 2015 we brought them home to their new house. They have been so fun to have, but I worry that I'm not doing everything right, I just want to make sure they are getting the best care. I picked these types of chickens because it said these types were very hardy in the cold weather. I plan on getting some more like these, I just have to get my area ready for the chicks and get them in a month or so.
