I am super crazy about my "backyard chickens. This is the first time I have ever had chickens. I have 2 Barred Rocks and they started laying a couple of weeks ago. It was like Christmas at my house!!! I felt like I laid them...tee hee hee. I live in Oklahoma and have a odd question.....I like the shape/thickness of my chickens...the color of their combs/waddles. I am wondering if there is another breed of chicken similar to these girls or was this just love at first sight? Chubby little girls aren't they? I wanted to thank everyone for all the info. I was able to guess my fatties egg laying days with all the advice. Oops, My name is Paula.
