I got my first chickens yesterday. 5 17 week old brown Hyline started pullets. They are a cross between a RIR and a White Leghorn I think. Very cute! I am so excited. What a great mother's day present. And I scooped my first chicken poo today Wish me luck! I have never done this before, so we will need lots of luck and this website for support. Happy Mother's Day to all chicken moms!
