Hi Everyone! I'm a newbie, but have been posting on different threads on different boards already. Just wanted to be 'proper' and introduce myself here. My 9yo daughter and I recently moved to the Savannah, GA area. We have entertained and researched keeping chickens for the past couple of years, and decided this was the year to jump on in! We started out with 6 babies this Monday, and are now at our final count of 16! Out of these 12 came from tractor supply (3 red pullets, 3 reg pullets, 2 speckled sussex, 2 partridge plymouth rocks, 2 Ameracunas) and 4 came from a semi-local farmer (2 black marans, 1 blue maran and 1 'throwback' maran). I'm sure there will be at least one or two roos out of the bunch, but we are mainly focused on eggs and pets! After shadowing some threads, I now understand what everyone was saying about the 'addiction' of chickens! We haven't even had our first egg yet, and I'm already there. I plan on moving them to a bigger brooder tomorrow with some 'perches' for roosting. We have 1 week olds, 3-4 day olds and 1 days olds. I'm glad to be a member, and hope to gain much knowledge and insight from everyone's experience and expertise!
