    Hi All,

    I am new to chickens. Last January my husband and I incubated 5 EE hatching eggs. All 5 were hens. We kept them up until last Saturday when a racoon came and got them all. It was a very sad day for me. Since then, I've acquired a Barred Rock rooster but we have no hens. I'm in the process of trying to locate some hens but am having a hard time. I'd really like more EEs.

    Good news is, we have a dozen EE hatching eggs order and should be on their way any day.

    Nice to meet you all,
    Angie

    Hi Angie and welcome to BYC - glad to have you onboard with us! Sorry about the loss of your first girls, but i hope that you get some girls soon - for your roos sake.

    Maybe you can search for your state thread in the search box. This will help you get to know others BYC members in your area and who knows - they may even be able to guide you to a source of girls for your lonely boy?

    All the best and good luck with your planned hatch also.

    Please do beef up your coop and run security. Otherwise you will continue to buy replacement birds. Once a predator has made off with an easy meal, you are on his radar forever.

    He will be back, and probably bring family or friends with him.
