Hi. My name is Christine... my family bought a house in Florida and the former owner couldn’t take her chickens and turkey so now I find myself learning all kinds a new things. We have 5 hens, 2 roosters and a turkey. I have no idea what breeds they are but they’re all so gorgeous, even the one mean Rooster. I’m partial to the docile/submissive rooster tho. He’s my favorite. He’s like a puppy that follows you around ❤️ Anyway thanks for this site. It’s great and I can’t wait to see what our new life with chickens brings us.

Hello, and welcome! Glad that you joined! Good luck with your flock! I hope that the 2 rooster's don't wear out those 5 hen's. Maybe you could re-home the rooster that you don't like, or send him to freezer camp?
I have been thinking of rehoming the dominant rooster but for now we have them living separate and i plan on introducing more hens to make them happy. My sister that lives with us is vegan and strictly prohibits eating our pets :lol:
