    Hello! New to BYC and new to chickens! I should be getting my first chickens on Monday or Tuesday, and I am very excited. Getting a Rhode Island, and a Barred. Or two of one, and one of one. 3 laying hens to start. All from the same flock. I'm very excited!

    I have golden and silver laced wyandotte, welsummer, black australorp, buff orpington and barred rocks. They'll be laying in about a month. I also have olive and Easter eggers hatching in a week.

    Well, I'll get back to you to see if I want to add more, and to see if you still have any when I'm ready for them. Thanks!
