I found the Back Yard Chickens website while researching raising chickens. We adopted 12 one year old mixed breed Plymouth Rock White/Meat King hens in April 2012. My husband and I would like to learn to be more self-sufficient and pass along this information to our 2 teens. Our other adopted family members include 1 dog, 1 cat, 2 rabbits, 3 rats and tropical fish. We look forward to learning more about chicken care from other members.
