Just wanted to say hi and thanks. I've been raising chicken for almost a year. I've come to this site many times for important info. I have 1 big coop devided into 3 different coops. I have 18 laying hens and 3 roosters. I have 21 baby chicks in a chicken tractor. I also have a hen setting on 13 eggs. Last but not least I have 9 eggs in an incubater. Thanks to all the info from this site, things are pretty good.

Wow what a brood...hens on eggs, 18 laying hens with 3 roosters, eggs in incubators, those are busy girls (and boys. I just put my first 6 Orpington "girls" in the coop end of our barn with their 'man' and it has a very nice soft and dry dirt floor. Those girls burrowed down in the floor. I told them that if they dug to China they'd get eaten. ..LOL...
I've got 3 white Australorps and 3 black Sex Links week old chick's in the basement broader basking. Soooo cute!
These girls are my family pets.
Since I'm a newbie does any one know why roosters flap their wings like every few minutes? Is he showing off?
