    Hi Everyone,

    This isn't actually a "New" member post but more of a returning member post. My family and I had to sell off out flock, coop and all that about a year ago when I took a new job and had to move to a condo while we looked for a home. We just bought a new house on 5 acres with a barn and we're gearing up for a new flock! Our 3yr old daughter is SUPER excited to have chickens again, guess we just have to find a feed store with some chicks now!

    We are however looking for some hens to get us started, preferably already at POL and older birds with only a few more seasons of laying left are fine too. Anyone in the Kansas City area willing to part with a few hens for $10-$20 each while we brood out some chicks? We prefer RIR's or buff orpingtons but we're not picky on the 1st few ladies.

    Glad to be back! - Bob

    Welcome back!

    Once you have 20 posts you can use the buy-sell-trade forum. You're almost there now!

    How exciting to be able to have a flock again, such a great hobby for the whole family.

    Well I ordered 50 Chicks today, still hoping to pick up a few mature hens to get a few eggs in before this batch hits POL. Any advice would be appreciated as well!

    Hello everyone I am new to chicken mothering! I got 5 babies around Easter for my rather large chicken coop. I am now looking for more black cooper muran chicks. I live in Edgerton Kansas just south of overland park. My inherited coop has 60 boxes in it. What is the max amount of bird a coop that size can hold? Does each girl need more than one box? I also have ducks, geese and Guineas can they all sleep together? Thanks for taking your time and reading my post.
