Hello all. My name is Jessica and I live in western Ky. I currently have 5 pullets (I think) 2 Barred Rock, 2 Buff Orpington, and 1 Black Copper Moran (at least that is what they were marked). They are an estimated 13 weeks. I have a huge coop because my hubby knew I would get more so I have 6 nesting boxes total. I currently just ordered more. I am helping my nephew because he just lost 8 to something unknown. I will be keeping them for a few months. I ordered from Murray Mcmurray. He wanted 10 RIR. I got 2 RIR, 2 salmon favorells, 2 white orpingtons 1 rose comb brown leghorn, 1 partridge Cochin, 1 rare chick TBD. I got the vaccinated from mareks and coccidiosis. My hubby and I want color and variety, while my nephew wanted RIR to replace the ones he just lost. My hubby just built a little mini coop for the chicks who will be here next week sometime. I am excited to have lost of eggs eventually.

I hope to post pics later.

Awesome! Welcome! Sounds like you are off to a great start. Chickens are addicting, and I love love love collecting eggs! I have a couple of RIR and I really enjoy them. My rooster is one, and he's pretty colorful but Amelia (the hen) is just black with a brown dotted chest. I think they are mixed with something, but I'm not sure.. But I really enjoy my RIRs for their personalities. Can't wait to see the pictures!! :)
