    Hi everybody. Decided I wanted to enhance my family's life with a little chicken farming. Had some growing up and they bring back some fond memories. Want the same for my kids.

    Anyhow, ordered a batch of chicks yesterday. 4 each of barred rock, Rhode Island reds, buff Orpington, and leghorn. All female. Once they get older I plan to split them and give half to my mom.

    Use mainly for entertainment and eggs.

    Anyhow thanks for having me. I am sure lots of questions to come...
