    Good Morning BYC

    Just picked up my first flock yesterday evening, assorted variety. 5 hens (1salmon faverolle, 1 bielfelder, 2 blue laced red wyandotte and a partridge rock) and a rooster (speckled sussex). They are all around same age, hatched mid to late october. Checked on all of them this morning still fast asleep. I live in northern RI. The coop is a 15 chicken coop with 4 nesting boxes and attached to a 10'x10'x6' run. (pictures to follow) I look forward to learning and raising the girls and boy.

    Cheers
    Andrew
