Hey All, Haven't been on the board for awhile...been so busy with the move into our new home. Finally though, we are settled and have ordered our first "batch" of chicks. We're getting 13 New Hampshire Reds. We understand they are considered good layers. We are so excited, we are beside ourselves! We're like, "is it silly to be this excited over chicks?" LOL. Maybe to some perhaps, but I know all you guys will understand all too well. Am looking forward to getting back into posting and reading all over this forum. Brace yourself for all my questions..LOL.. You all provide an unbelievable wealth of information. Thank you, truly, from a very excited newbie!
