It has been over 40 years since I have enjoyed the entertainment of watching a couple of month old pullets discover the outside world.
I was 1000 miles away from wanting chickens until I drove by a yard near my home and saw a flock of rotund RIRs running around the yard. Childhood memories flooded my head. I went on line as soon as I got home and ordered a small coop.
The coop kit arrived and was assembled as soon as I got it out of the box.( I should note that, I am a horrible procrastinator).
The next day I had food and a feeder, as well as a watering gizmo. The bale of shavings was way bigger than I thought it would be.
Day 3 I had my girls in a box and headed home.
The past 2 weeks have been more entertaining than anything on television.
The chicks in my avatar are Valerie( the blonde) and Serena ( the brunette).
This site was the first place I found, after ordering the coop and I have found it to be a deep well of knowledge and ideas.
I hope my story didn't bore anyone.
I'M FREAKING EXCITED ABOUT MY CHICKENS!
