My wife and I have been planning our flock for 2 years prior to us getting our first chickens. Well this is the year and it has been great so far. We bought a stock tank from TSC and the usual supplies. We purchased 4 black sex link one is a roo. We also got 8 production reds. Well that was our flock for a whole 2 hours and someone got a wire hair and went to orcheliens and bought 4 Easter eggers, 4 Plymouth rocks, and 4 buff orpingtons. Now we have 22 hens and 2 roos. Talk about backyard flock to hobby farmer. LOL O yeah my name is Richard and the wife is Krystal.
