    Been reading BYC for about a month now. [​IMG] Seems like a lot of good people on here! Lots of information! The family and I are new to raising chickens, but are excited about it. We have the coop built and will be getting pullets soon. ?? I have read that hens tend to lay more often with a rooster? True? [​IMG]Thanks in advance for any help. (BTW: If you live in central Ms. and have some pullets or straight runs for sell; I'm interested!)
