Hi, My name is Kim and I'm new to this BYC forum. I grew up on a farm, but married a "city boy" and didn't think I could have chickens where we live. Happily found out that we could and purchased some week old Barred Rock chicks, last spring. Thankfully, they all turned out to be hens. So, now I'm just waiting for them to start laying. They are about 21 weeks.
