Ordered 15 barred rock chicks for laying hens! They'll be here May 22nd! I had 2 chickens when I was little but this is my first on my own :) any help or tips would be greatly appreciated!
head for the learning center first and then branch out to whatever interests you
Greetings from Kansas, BScott03, and
! Great to have you with us and the adventure that is chickens! I agree with drumstick - start with the Learning Center - it will get you off to a good solid beginning! Best wishes!
Hello and welcome from glad you joined BYC

Barred rocks are such a nice friendly layer. You will love them

Good luck and hope they have a nice quick trip and arrive safe and sound :)
Thank you all! I really appreciate it! I bought Storey's Guide to Raising Chickens and I've pretty much read it all. When I first ordered my chicks, I originally wanted RIR's. The man at the hatchery told me it would be mid July until I could get my RIR's and I'm soooo impatient! Lol I asked what another good breed similar to RIR's would be and he suggested Barred Rock's. I started doing my research on them and they sound awesome! I'm so excited to start my chicken adventure :)
