I was recently given 6 RIR hens a rooster and two other chicks. I don't know what breed the chicks are. My husband and I built a coop with a run. The hens have been great egg producers!!! Now I am excited to say I made a homemade incubator and have 8 eggs that will hopefully hatch around October 5 or 6. Excited to be a new member of BackYard Chickens!!!
