    Hi all,
    I didn't see an intro section, but I wanted to say hello before I just start posting.
    I'm Grace- I live in New England with my husband and 1 year-old daughter, our dog (a pit bull), a barn cat, and 17 newly added hens.
    My family had hens when I was younger, and now that I'm living more rurally I took the opportunity to get back into it.
    So, I have 6 White Rocks, 6 Barred Rocks, 4 RIR (I think...), and 1 Partridge Rock (again, I think... [​IMG] ) and I was told to come here by a friend of mine who knew I was just starting to get back into all of it.

    We've only had the hens about a week. They are a little over a year old, and we bought them from a farm up north of us. So far, so good. Not all of them are laying yet (about 4 of them are), but we knew they would need a week or two to settle in. The Barred Rocks seem to be doing the best (I think one is going broody), but they each are getting better/more comfortable/more pushy! every day.

    Anyways, I've been looking around here, and it looks like a lot of informative people! I'm glad I was pointed here.
