Hey everyone. Just wanted to chime in and say hello. I'm new to raising chickens but excited to start enjoying the many rewards of raising chickens. I have 9 birds. 2 Columbian Rhode Island Cross and 7 Barred Plymouths. I've done quite a bit of research bUT it's nice to have a group like this for support. I look forward to chatting with you all in the upcomjng months.
