Hi! Im new here! Although I have been coming to this site for almost a year with all of my chicken questions. I have 9 Rhode Island Reds that i have raised from 2 wks old and in November will mark a year. These are our first round with chickens and we have had a lot of fun! I am allergic to eggs, but my family isnt. I wanted the chickens to eat the bugs and I share the eggs with family. Looking forward to learning so much and I appreciate all of the posts and help you give!
