    Hi everyone! My are name is Kirby. I am in Smithfield RI. The east coast got hit pretty hard with snow this year and the girls weren't amused. lol. It is melting now and they have been getting a lot more sun so their egg production has increased quite a bit over the last few weeks alone. I have only 4 chickens, April, May, June and Miss Sara Coops. I would live to get 2 more for a total of 6. I got my girls last April so we are going on a year pretty soon. I had chickens growing up. We had Rhode Island reds and some fancy chickens. I am more interested in Orpingtons myself. Anyway, that about sums me and my little flock up. I look forward to picking you brains about this and that.

    Talk soon,

    Kirby
