    Hi! I'm so glad I found this forum. This is my first time raising chickens and I'm in love! We have 22 total. 2 roosters and 20 hens. We have Barred Rock, Easter Egg (can't spell or pronounce the real name), RR, Buffs, and Black sex link. They are 7 months old and got them when they were a day or two old. We got our first egg last week, but none since. We build a wonderful chicken house and will post pics later. Our chicks free range but all I have to do is call them and they come running! Loving being a chicken mom. [​IMG]

    Hello and welcome to BYC!
    I would love to see photos!
    Please feel free to ask questions!
    I love free ranging, when I first started I was so afraid they would just run away into the woods! But they liked treats to much :)
    Good luck with your flock!
