Hi! My name is Becky and my wife and I are in north central Indiana and we have 5 barred rock hens coming tomorrow. They are about 24 weeks and we are excited to soon have our own eggs. Joined this site so we could continue to learn more about backyard chickens. We will be using a tractor and we are fortunate that we will have 6-8 acres to move them around with our neighbors!

Welcome to BYC!

Congrats on your new hens!! Give them time to adjust to their new home. Move slowly around them and if you sit quitely with them everyday with some treats, and do this for a couple weeks, they will really bond up nicely with you.

If you have any questions, that is what we are here for. Welcome to BYC!
