    Hello im from NorthWest indiana and im very new to the whole chicken thing. i actually have been reading the forum here for quite a while now, even before i got my flock. right now i have 11 chickens, one male, 10 females. We have 3 "amerucanas" (thats what the store had them marked as but im not sure as of yet.) Eagle (my only male, and yes. he is hen pecked.) Time Out, and Cuddles. we also have Cloud the Brahama, SkyBawker the White Leghorn, Rex the Barred plymouth rock, Mama and Kevin the ISA browns, a buff orpington named buff, and two rhode island reds. Captain Stubbing (of the love boat. whatever that is.) and Ruffles.

    This whole project started because my mom wanted fresh eggs. we got our chicks at the farm store near us at 3 days old. they're now at 20(ish) weeks and i've built my own coop and run. they've just starting to lay, so i guess im doing something right. Ruffles and Eagle are mine, and the rest of my family has the others. i am sort of the one in charge of the whole thing though. as i am the only one who takes care of them and looks up info for them. im the oldest of 10 kids (7 sisters, 2 brothers), but only 2 brothers and 3 sisters live with my mom and my step dad. the rest are with my dad and step mom. My two year old sister, Lilyann, named Time Out and Buff. My brother brandon has Kevin and mama, my sister heather has cloud, and my other sister emily has rex. Mom named Captain Stubbing and "Luke" Skybawker.

    Well thats a little bit about myself, and this introduction is already WAY longer than i had first anicipated. so im done now.
