    Hello all; new to posting on the forum but have been getting a lot of education from the group since I started my first backyard flock in May. I have 3 (2 barred rocks, 1 australorp) pullets in the backyard now and 5 two week olds in the brooder inside (2 RIR, 1 speck. sussex, 2 silkies); a bit of a victim to chicken math! I continue to be amazed by these amazing creatures, they have such a presence. I'm expecting my first eggs by October and find myself going into the coop to add this or that, like I'm nesting not the chickens. I continue to read everything about chickens I can get and am just soaking it all up.
