Just found this site by searching for tips on raising chickens. I am a chicken newbie, but have a sister that is an old hand (she set me up with the fine family pictured below). They were in their new home for about 5 hours before one of the hens gave me her first present. The rooster was taken from a flock where he was a non-dominant male, so he seems to be loving life now. Will be reading and learning tons as I have a bunch of space that I can already see dominated by more and more chickens.
