I inherited 4 chickens the end of October. I have one black sex-link and 3 golden laced wyandottes. They are beautiful! The sex-link is about 3 years old and the others were born last spring. I was not sure I wanted chickens but now I am obsessed with them. I love my girls. They started laying the end of November and haven't stopped. We get 4 eggs almost every day. I have recently been interested in getting some silkies so I have 5 coming the end of April. This will be the first time I have had baby chicks though we had them while growing up but did not have the responsibility of caring for them. I am really excited and getting prepared for them. I do know they are not big producers but I mainly want them as pets. I have read so much about chickens. My husband is building them a different coop. I can't wait!
