Hello! My name is Becka and I recently bought my first chicks. I've got 3 Buff Orpingtons (1 a cockerel), 2 Barred Rocks, 1 Speckled Sussex and 1 Black Laced Silver Wyandotte. My son-in-law, the farm boy of the family, has built me a chicken coop that looks like Dr. Who's tardis! I'm hoping to raise enough layers to provide my family with eggs and also meat birds. (And hoping I'll be strong enough to process the meat birds.) I am very glad to find this group.
