    I just to say hello and I am new to all this and learning as I go. I ask different people who has chickens and how to do this and that. We my husband and I are wanting to expand our flock and recently added four new birds to our sexlinks we got back in the end of march into April I belive. There a joy to have and love the benfit of not having to buy eggs anymore. Were still getting somewhere in between three to sometimes six eggs a day depending on the hens.

    The only problem of getting and adding new birds are the getting along part, It's taking forever. We added a buff orphin a chocin batam ( little roo) and our silikies. I am also reading a how to raise chickens as well, so any help is welcome. Thanks Diane

    [​IMG] from Indiana! Yeah, adding new birds is always troublesome - you can definitely see where the term "henpecked" comes from though, can't you?...lol.
