    New to the board and already had so many questions answered figured I would introduce myself. I have 6 chickens ( or they have me) my wife and I got 2 RIR 2 buckeyes and 2 EE's. It has really been fun raising them. They have just recently started laying eggs and should I ever have to buy store bought eggs I will totally be disappointed as backyard eggs are SO delicious. Without further adieu let me introduce our ladies!

    Helen she is the queen bee of the flock and will never look at the camera. Especially when she is out free ranging.

    This is Foamy ( aka the lunch mouth) never looks up while she is out so this is the best you get!

    Athena, or the Diva of the group. My wife has spoiled her alot and prefers to be carried most places.

    tHIS IS [email protected]#[email protected] named such due to how she acts when you pick her up lol. Has a little wild side this buckeye does.

    Big Red ( the enforcer) always seems to be on the look out for any dangers.

    and last but not least munchkin. Never ventures too far from the run/ coop and cries for the others to come back.

    Hello and :welcome

    We are glad you joined us! Aww you have such a neat flock, and such pretty birds! I used to have two chickens named red, and they looked exactly like big red, well that's because they were Rhode Island reds too. ;) This is a great site for chicken owners to ask their questions and learn all about chickens! We can't wait to help you with your chicken questions and chat chicken with you. :p Make sure to check out the entire site.

    Once again :welcome
