    Hi, my name is Melissa and im from Massachusetts... the worcester area. I just got my henhouse on Saturday and it came with 4 chickens. I had thought three of them were roosters, but i just recently learned that hens can have combs too.. had no clue! So now im not sure what I have! at any rate, I have always wanted chickens but never had the time/space. But now I own my own home on two acres and with my new hen house, the skys the limit! I have 6 kids, and we go through a lot of eggs, so thats one of the other reasons i"ve wanted them. On Sunday, the first full day of having them, my 5 year old and i went out and found an egg which we brought into the house and daddy cooked. my 5 year old loved it! he was so grateful, he went back outside and thanked the hen for the wonderful breakfast. So adorable. I look forward to meeting all of you.. lord knows i have questions!

Have a browse through the Learning Center, I'm sure it will answer some of your questions (there is an article on different combs types in there as well [​IMG]).
