    I live in Florida and I started raising backyard chickens over ten years ago , I took a few years off and I'm back! I re-started with two breeds that I've never had before. A Rhode Island Red- Dorothy and a Light Brahma - Noodle. They are three weeks old and my family and I can literally see them grow each day. If anyone has those breeds , I'd love to hear any stories, tips or tricks to raising happy healthy girls!

    Hello and welcome to BYC! :frow Glad you joined.
    I have a very mixed flock. My RIR is the head hen... for now. I have 14 pullets coming up the ranks. I've never had a Brahma but I hear they are positively delightful birds. Good for you for getting back into chickens!

    I have two light Brahma but I got them as adults. They are super cool, calm, laid back, and beautiful. They walk around side by side like they own the joint.
