Hello redbear1961! Welcome from Upper Michigan! Glad to have you join us. Do you have chickens already or working on adding some? They are the most addicting critters I have ever had. NOBODY warned me that when I started with 6 - all girls, that they some how still tend to multiply. I'm up to 9 - I count them as 8 1/4 though. That dinky little sassy sebright my cousin sent my way a week ago we count as the 1/4. See, that's my excuse for allowing another that needed a home to come here (Ameraucana 5 mo. old). She doesn't count as a "whole" chicken so of course there's room for "one" more. Sounds like a valid excuse to me.
