    Hi I'm Paula from Southeast Georgia. I have 28 two month old chickens that I've raised from day old chicks. I've had chickens before, but it's been about 15 years so it's like everything's new again. I'm still trying to identify some of the breeds, so I'll post some pics soon. I'm excited to see everyone's chicks and chickens and learn more about them. :)

    Welcome from the land of the Crimson Tide! My story is almost the same as yours. Had chickens as I was growing up, and have recently gotten back into it. Our 27 are about the same age as yours.

    Hello from Middle Georgia,

    :welcome so glad you have joined us.

    Wish I had your past experience, I couldn't handle 28 :eek:.
    I have 2 (remaining out of 6) hens now 4 years old, and 4 - 3 week old babies in the brooder.

    Good luck with your newbies and congrats on getting back into chicken tending.

    Welcome to Backyard chickens. The Learning center makes a great refresher course. You may also want to post photos (individual ones) at "what breed or gender is this," to sort out what you have.
