Hi all! We are Ben and Cass, we recently bought and moved our family (3 boys) to a 3 acre piece of farmland in SC. We started our little farm with a few goats, and we already had a few dogs and cats. Yesterday we decided after much research to purchase and bring home our first group of chickens!!! We ended up with 2 Rhode Island Reds, 2 Sex Links, 2 Barred Rocks, 2 Golden Wyndottes, and 2 Buffs, and a beautiful rooster who my husband lovingly named Bo! We are so excited! We were told they should start laying in the next month or so! Your website and forums were a big help in our decision process so I figured we might as well join!
