    Hey there from southwestern New Hampshire!

    I've owned chickens for about a year and a half. And I call my flock my "Practice Chicks".

    Heading over to the forum now to post my first thread and ask lots of questions!

    Love your avatar pic - my flock loves to play in the woods on our property when we let them out of the run (can only do supervised play time due to new neighbors moving in fairly close with dogs I can't trust)

    You're welcome. I have had all of those breeds at one time or another over the years. They are all cold hardy, and good layers. You should get lots of nice eggs from them.
