    We started our first flock about 4 weeks ago and have fallen in love with the process! We have six in out flock...2 Amberlinks, 2 ISA Browns, and 2 Rhode Island/New Hampshire! Their names are Popcorn, Butters, Rum, Whiskey, Splif, and Mary Jane. I just love them and am so excited to watch them grow! Thanks in advance for all the help and fun conversations![​IMG]
