    Hi Everyone!! I have been reading a lot on this web sight and thought it was time to join. Raising chickens is a new venture for our family. My daughter who is 10 decided she was ready to sale her old swing set, and she wanted to replace it with a coop (which her and her Dad built) and we bought 6 chickens back on April. We have 4 leghorns and 2 silkies. Turns out about 3 weeks ago, we now know one of our silkies is indeed a rooster. We are enjoying every minute of raising them, and loved that we did get them as babies. I am sure I will be having a ton of questions to ask on here and want to thank everyone in advance now!!!

    Welcome to Backyard chickens. It's so nice when the entire family gets involved. Have you checked out the Learning Center ? It's the best place to start a chicken education.
