    Hi everyone! I'm new to the website and new to chickens! My husband and I picked up 5 straight run RIRs about 7 weeks ago, and 3 leghorn pullets and 3 penedesenca straight run about 6 weeks ago. I'm pretty certain we have 3 RIR cockerels and 1 penedesenca cockerel. We just finished our coop yesterday, I included a picture! We are very proud of it. Will be making the run next!

    Welcome to BYC. Very nice coop, I love the windows. Chickens do like to look out.

    Love me some leghorns and RIR's! I have my fancier birds, but those leghorns are the friendliest birds I've ever owned!

    Wow, my wife and I were raised not too far from where you are (Blue Ridge for her, Greenville for me) and we used to occasionally go to First Monday. It's a small world. :eek:)

    Hi and welcome to our community! [​IMG]

    Glad you could join BYC! Congratulations on beginning your chicken adventures. Rhode Island Reds and Leghorns are nice productive breeds that I'm sure you'll enjoy. My Rhode Island Red has had a good temperament and has been a very good egg producer. I haven't kept Penedesencas, but they sure are beautiful birds! You've built a beautiful coop. I love the colors![​IMG]

    Welcome to our flock and I hope you enjoy BYC! Good luck with your lovely birds.
