I'm really learning a lot from this site. I think I'm on here everyday, reading posts, looking at pics of coops and browsing around. I have 4 chickens, a RIR, EE, Barred Rock and a Buff Orphington. I'm learning a lot from this site and my 3 year old son loves the chickens too. We got them as chicks and they are 4 months old now. I'm thinking of adopting a pullet, at least I hope it's a pullet, from my local animal shelter. Has anyone done this before?
