I'm joining this site because I want to to know more about raising backyard chickens. My husband and I got our first hens (Rhode Island Reds) about a year ago and loved them so much that we just got 6 Barred Rock hens. We are in the process of building a bigger coop for all our girls. When we first talked about getting hens, I wasn't so sure because I wasn't a bird person. But he talked me into it and after about 2 months, I was hooked. I love my girls. They come when I call them and eat their favorite food, meal worms, out of my hand. We currently have a silkie rooster that I'm trying to rehome because he doesn't like my husband AT ALL!
I'm hoping that through this site, I can find answers to any backyard chicken question that may arise and that I may have an answer to some myself.
I'm mostly a horse person and I have 3 horses and 2 donkeys on my farm. We also have 2 dogs and a cat.
