We have just recently started keeping backyard chickens. I grew up raising them and I was super excited to find out that we can have chickens in our city (just no rooster). In April we bought four chicks- 1 Rhode island Red, 1 Light Brahma, 1 Speckled Sussex, and 1 Ameraucana (Easter Egger). I fell In love instantly and have decided I can never go back to being chicken-less. My girls are now about 6months old and I am finally seeing some beautiful brown eggs. There seems to be a lot to know about chickens and I am relieved to be able to have others to ask questions to and get feed back from. Happy chicken raising everyone!!
