Hi! I'm new to the forums, but have lurked for a while. I have had RIRs for about 3 years. Got them from TSC. Out of 6 ... I still have 2. ROOS!! They drove off the hens! I learned from that to only have 1 roo! Those poor hens! They were just fed up! I just reciently got 4 RIR hens (about a month old) and some misc. chicks. I really enjoy watching and listening to my chickens. Not to mention my 3 yr old LOVES them! I really have learned a lot from these forums and look forward to posting! Have a great day!
