    Congrats!!!

    Keeping backyard chickens are so much fun, and this site has an abundance of information!
    Barred Rocks are my FAVORITE!
    We have a variety of breeds-- I like all the odd ones and the different color eggs, but my one favorite are barred rocks. They have the BEST personalities.
    We used to have one named Daisy that would come knock on our back slider. My toddler daughter would let her in and push her around in her baby doll stroller (where the chicken would stay!)
