    I have been wanting a place to talk to fellow chicken lovers (or in my case....obsessers) and I am so glad I found this!! We have a small chicken operation in our backyard outside of Shelby, NC. We got 23 RIR from my in laws back in the summer. We butchered 9 roosters (yumm!) and lost 2 others, one got killed by a dog and the other died from being weak and sickly. Now we have 1 rooster (Waylon) 11 RIR hens, 2 buff orpington hens, 2 golden comet hens (I think), 2 dominique hens, and 3 white leghorns. I was raised in the city and never thought I would have the love for my chickens that I do!! So glad I'm not the only one!!!
