    Hello!! I am new here. I raise my own chickens for eggs and every few years for meat. We don't show, but that does sound fun. We have Cochins, Golden Polish, Red Stars, Rhode Island Reds, Barred Rocks, Buff Orpingtons, White Leghorns, and an Araucana (my favorite girl.) I think that is all. My dad and I look forward to learning about these beautiful birds. We have had chickens for 6 years now, and will have them for the rest of our lives. Our chickens live in a nice coop and are let out side every day. Right now we have a mix between "teenage" chickens and older chickens, so each flock gets let outside every other day so there is no fighting. I can't wait to meet you all!!!! [​IMG]

    Thank you!!! Oh, and I forgot to add Black Giants, White giants, and Black stars to that list. I think that is all, if I find more, too bad I'm not adding them. [​IMG]
