Hi! I am new on here and somewhat new to raising chickens. I always had them growing up in Northern California but as a kid never really paid much attention to them. I finally was able to convince my mom to move to Louisiana (it only took having 3 kids!) and when she got here she said we need chickens! I thought she was crazy but we did it anyway and now I have backyard chickens. We have 4 hens, Goldie (Cochin), Sweetie (barred rock, Floppy & Red (rhode island red). We have 4 pullets (americana), Brownie, Tiger, Bonnet & Fluffy. Well hopefully they are pullets! My friends think its funny that all the chickens have names (well of course they do!) and that I can tell them a part.
