I first found this sight last fall, and got too busy! I first got my chicks in March as day olds. I have Barred Rocks, Love them! Started out with 15. I now have 8 hens (not enough). I have 3 roos and they just started fighting, had to seperate. Was hoping to sell them but when people found they had fought didn't want them. It's been to cold and wet to put them in the freezer. We moved here to our mini farm last year. I have 2 goats, 11 chickens, 1 duck, 3 cats and a dog. 2 sons are grown and married with 2 granddaughters, 1 lone son left at home. I am excited about adding to my brood (chicks)! Hopefully, will have 20 or so by this spring! Love the sight, so much info and help.
