My fiance and I are new members but long time observers lol this site is a tremendous learning tool and I would like to thank everyone in the community for their knowledge and help even before we became members...... I am Tom, my fiance is Zee. We came into our flock on whim. My fiancé located 3 Americuans on a Fb yard sale site and the rest is history. We built a coop far too large so we then decided to purchase more babies. We knew nothing about chickens but found every bit of information possible here, on backyard chickens. We now own a flock of 9. It consist of our orginal 3 plus.....2 sexlings, 2 rhode island reds, and 2 buff orphintons. Thanks to the help of the community we have determined we have 8 hens and 1 rooster! (Awaiting confirmation) we look forward to learning more and connecting with the community.
