Hi, my name is Elizabeth and I just joined last night. I've been occasionally reading the members' postings from time to time since we acquired our first flock of 5 chicks this spring. We live about 15 miles north of Orlando in a suburb called Longwood. We can't have a rooster in our neck of the woods, but we're looking forward to some eggs this fall and really enjoy our time every evening watching the pullets free range. Our daughters, ages 12 and 9, love to feed them sunflower seeds out of their hands and hold the more laid-back ones from time to time. I did post a question under the topic of "Managing your flock" because we are having some trouble introducing a younger pullet to our existing flock.(One of the chickens turned out to be a rooster, so we swapped him out with the poultry breeder last week) If you have some experience with this, please check out my post from yesterday evening. The thread was called 'Need help/advice about integrating new pullet into existing flock' or something like that. We could use some friendly advice!!
