    Hi Joey,

    It seems there is always something new to learn about chickens. That and their fun personalities are what makes raising them interesting, I think.

    What breed(s) of chickens are you raising? There are a lot of breed focus threads you can find just by entering the breed name in the Search box.

    Have fun with your flock, it's nice to have you here!

    Thanks. I have 25 one weak old red sex links to raise, but I only plan on keeping 12. The others I will split with my dad and my wife's dad.

    I like the RSL girls. I have 3 in my mixed flock and not only are they awesome egg layers but they have outstanding personalities. Nice you can spread the chickie wealth!
