Hey, my name is Geneva, and I first got chickens about 4 years ago. They all eventually died after a year or two, and I didn't get any after that until this past summer around the end of June. I have 10 chickens, 5 Sapphire Gems and 5 Rhode Island Red. I got the Sapphires from my brother who owns a farm, and the Rhode Island Reds from craigslist. Looking forward to knowing more about chickens!
