Hi! I have enjoyed reading posts and learning about chickens on this forum since last spring when I first decided to get my own flock! I got my first four pullets (barred rocks about 16 weeks old) in August 2015. One of the hens died suddenly two weeks ago which hurt my feelings a lot more than I thought it would. I just had a broody hatch 6 chicks on 6/29 and added 6 additional chicks for her to raise last night. She is doing great so far. I couldn't have done any of it without you folks asking and answering questions! I look forward to joining the discussions!
