    I am new to this fourm. I signed up a while ago and then got into to much other things and never posted anything.
    It started about two years ago i bought 25 RIR at chick day at the local feed mill and we raised them. Then a coon got all of them and that stopped us a little. Found a guy that sold buff Gold Comets. They were about 17 weeks old and they started to lay with in a couple days and i have not looked back.
    I got alot of people wanting eggs and so t got 11 more here about 3weeks and put them with the old girls and that threw everthing off but they will work it out. I have a waiting list for eggs.
    I want to get a rooster for them and start to hatch my own babys and keep a good supply going.
    The coop was first a wood shed then it went to a storage shed then back to a wood shed then a chicken coop. The coop is just the right size but i will build a bigger one for them here in the near coming year.
    I now have 30 gold comets.
    Now that i have board you all i will go back and read some more of the old fourms.

    Thanks Alot Mr Mom

    Hi and [​IMG] another NE Ohioian here! [​IMG] Where are you located? We are in Newbury, near Chardon, in Geauga county. Both DH and I are originally from Ashtabula so we are really familiar with the area.

    If you are looking for a rooster, I have some here you can pick from. You can PM me if you are interested. We have BCM, BBS Amer, Olive Eggers and a few mixed breeds.
