I have many goals in life. One has come to fruition-owning chickens I had no real knowledge of owning chickens until I picked some up at my local feed store. The folks there were super helpful in getting me started. I was told I was buying FEMALE Red Sex Links, Rhode Island Reds and White Barred Rocks for the purpose of egg laying. Now that they're about 3 months old I'm questioning the accuracy of the information but I'm rolling with it. I eventually would like to raise my own meat chickens so if there are roosters in the bunch I guess it won't be all bad. I'm always learning and open to input! To all who participate in any of my threads/questions, thank you for your patience and info!
