    Hello everyone!

    Just joined after reading for the past year or so. I'm a Data Analyst in central Virginia with a small flock of chickens. Started about 9 months ago with some chicks from the local feed store - red stars. Here they are all grown up:

    Picked up a Barred Rock Roo a couple of weeks ago to add to the flock:

    And now I'm incubating my first batch of eggs!

    They all live together in my very cool solar powered chicken coop:

    Completely free range during the day since we have no neighbors.

    Looking forward to officially meeting everyone and asking (and hopefully eventually answering) some questions!
