Hey everyone I'm Katherine from North Carolina! My husband and I started keeping and raising chickens a little over a year ago, and we love it! We started with two Golden Comet hens, and an Araucana rooster. Since then we had to find a new home for mr rooster(pesky neighbors), but we've expanded our flock to include 10 bantam hens and a rooster, 6 barred rock pullets, and a surprise hatcher from our comments and the Araucana rooster! So far our biggest challenge has been getting chicks past that fragile 3 month mark. Where they've grown out of the brooder box, but still get sick very easily. So any tips with that are very much appreciated! So far the barred rock pullets are thriving, but they're also very hardy birds, so who knows Thanks!
