I am new to chickens and I can't tell you how much fun I have had raising the 5 chickens since February and watching them grow and developed there own personalities. This forum has guided me through lots of questions and answers to help me. I live in Georgia, have 5 hens, and thinking I have 3 Rhode Island Reds and 1 Buff and the other is a mix and I am guessing. They are 20 weeks old this Thursday. Can't figure out who is laying, but we have had 7 small eggs the last week. They have a great Coop and runner. I let them out from time to time, but we have a lot of hawks and owls around, so I keep a close watch. I work from home, so they get plenty attention. I have two Labs that love the chickens and the chickens love them. Hope I can share and learn as time goes on. Any advice is always welcome. Below is a picture of one of my hens. Will share more soon and ask some questions and share my progress.
