    Hello everyone. I just joined and wanted to introduce myself and my family (me + my wife, 2 girls and 1 boy). We also have 5 pullets and 4 roos (not intentionally [​IMG]). They are 12 weeks old now and a mix of Rhode Island Reds, Red Sexlinks, and Black Sexlinks. We are new to raising chickens and I have used this forum to learn a great deal. Thank you everyone!!!

    Hi! [​IMG]
    [​IMG] from Australia.
    Sexlinks are great, I've got four of them myself. Such good layers, they've laid without fail every day for the past few years. [​IMG]
    You girls will probably start soon. Mine started with the presents at four months of age, around New Years [​IMG]
    Hope to see you more round the forum [​IMG]

    Thanks for the warm welcomes everyone!

    To answer one of the questions...I will only keep one. Does anyone know a place in Massachusetts/New Hampshire line that would buy roosters? They are 100% organic and free range.
