HI! My name is Sarah and I am a relatively new chicken owner. We got our first chickens this spring and have been adding to our flock ever since. We started out with two Welsummer hens, two White leghorn hens and one Welsummer rooster. We have since added 20 others to the group including aricaunas, blue-laced wyandottes, more leghorns, a barred rock rooster,and a cuckoo maran hen. We don't really have a favorite breed yet, we like the hodge podge of having different breeds running around. Our first batch of eggs are due to hatch on Saturday! They are all probably leghorn/welsummer or leghorn/barred rock mixes. Does that matter? Mixxed breeds I mean. What advice to you have for a first time chicken mommy? BTW.... how many of you name your chickens? And how many of you eat them?
