Hi...new here but not to keeping chickens. Currently have 10 adults..4 Buff Orphs , 3 Silver Wyandottes ( one is a fatherless rooster ), 1 White Rock and 2 Red Sex links. Raising some babies...Speckled Sussex, Gold Laced Wyandottes and 3 Rainbow layers. Was letting the big girls free-range until a fox moved into the neighborhood so we are going to be converting an older shed into a chicken house and use chain link panels from a dog pen as the fencing. Funny...I really don't eat eggs..except for baking...I just like watching the poultry. They are soothing to the soul and their communication is fascinating. Susan and the Hoard...Chicks, dogs, cats.....oh dear !!
