Greetings! I'm putzing around the internet looking at all things chicken and every time I google something I get sent here anyway so I figured I better get with the program and quit lurking. I have a hodge podge of laying hens ranging in age from one to six and chicks in the brooder. I'm also having "rooster issues" this spring for the first time that have turned my nice little back yard to a series of jail cells 'till the raging hormone problems go away or get bad enough for the thought of eating a three year old roo to sound good. The birds I really want are white orpingtons because well, nevermind, no logical reason, I just want them.
