    Hello All,

    My name is Tom, and I have just started raising about 30 chicks. I have a rottweiler mix service dog, and a pit pull who has adopted the chicks as her babies. I have about 1000 sq ft of garden, and a 1/2 acre back yard to raise the hens.

    I live in a city that has a limit of 12 hens, but I am planning to build a coop to take care of any problems .My neighbors just want eggs.

    I have 6 RIR, some that I do not know, 4 Blacks, and a bunch of Easter Eggers.

    I raised chicks as a kid, but now, being 51 I am back to learning. I hope to be able to learn from all of yall!

    TOm

    The Learning Center is a great place to refresh your memory on raising chickens (and even learn a new thing or two).

    Have fun!

    Nice to meet you Tom, Welcome to Backyard chickens. If you post photos of your unknowns at "what breed or gender is this." please mention age in photo - it's a big help.
