Good morning, For 3 years are family has always talked about getting chickens for eggs. So we ventured out and now we are proud parents of 6 of the best chickens in our little North Carolina home. We have 1 sex link, 1 Rhode island red and 4 barred rock. Of course lessons learned when we are told all are hens we might have to study a bit more. So we are thinking we have 3 roosters 1 for sure. My husband found this site to help us out which we have learned a lot so far.
