Hey everyone, we are new to this sight and have had chickens just over 2 years. Have learned as we went, wish I knew about this site then. Olin and I have 1 rooster (named Todd), 7 hens, a dog named 38, and a cat. Yes everyone has names. Our ladies and Todd are our pets but we do enjoy fresh eggs. Havent hatched any yet but hope to try soon...maybe. We live in a small town in Upstate South Carolina.
