I'm Martha and my husband Rocky and I have started raising chickens. We have 11 Rhode Island Reds and 4 whites. We lost one of the white ones a day after they came. Too much stress from the trip, I suppose. But the rest are healthy and growing fast! They are now three weeks old and are a joy to watch. They seem to be skittish about being played with but I keep trying so that they will be used to me. From what I've read though, it seems to be part of their temperament. I look forward to being a part of this community!
