HI, I'm from southern Alabama, was raised around chickens but has been about 30 years since have been around them. My husband has converted part of the barn, and fenced off part of field for coop and run, and have bought all feeders, waterers and all. I have a couple different people in line to buy young chickens from, and am very excited. Plan on getting rhode island reds, barred rocks, orpington buffs, and maybe some others. We are going later this week to look. They are all around 12 - 15 weeks age, and I do not plan on getting any roosters at this time. I'm sure will be bugging everyone with lots of questions!!
