I've just started raising chickens in my backyard. I grew up with chickens, cows, horses, rabbits, geese and a goat at one time. We lived on 10 acres and my mom was into all natural foods. I currently have 3 chicks about 3 weeks old. Two are Rhode Island Reds and the other is a Black Sexlink I found out about backyard chickens from searching the web for ideas on what I needed for my babies. I finally have a backyard big enough to raise chickens and I'm really looking forward to having eggs the way I remember, nice dark yolks and awesome flavor. I love gardening, cooking, baking, crocheting and playing with my dogs and grandchild. I'm looking forward to being able to find answer when I need them for the chickens. I ran into someone the other day who raises chickens and he also recommended your website.
