    Hey everybody.. I'm from the south and just recently acquired my very first 2 Rhode Island Red roosters. I love them already. Just decided to join to get pointers and tips on how to keep these gorgeous creatures happy. This is my first time raising chickens and I'm looking forward to the new experience!
