Hello, all! I am fairly new to raising Chickens but I am enjoying them a lot. We started with 6 in the fall of '15. We lost one over the winter, not sure why and in early spring lost another to a Hawk. This past Sept we lost 2 more, at different times to a Fox. We since have added a Rooster and 5 more chicks. We now have 9 of different ages and types. Started with the ISA Brown and the ones we added are Barnvelders and the others are Marans. The pic below was when the little ones first went into the coop. We li ve in Western MI.
