Tom From Covington

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hello All,

 

My name is Tom, and I have just started raising about 30 chicks. I have a rottweiler mix service dog, and a pit pull who has adopted the chicks as her babies. I have about 1000 sq ft of garden, and a 1/2 acre back yard to raise the hens. 

 

I live in a city that has a limit of 12 hens, but I am planning to build a coop to take care of any problems .My neighbors just want eggs. 

 

I have 6 RIR, some that I do not know, 4 Blacks, and a bunch of Easter Eggers.

 

I raised chicks as a kid, but now, being 51 I am back to learning. I hope to be able to learn from all of yall!

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Hi Tom from Covington....Ky?

 

 

Let's see...30 chicks in a town that only allows 12 hens?

Yeah, you'll fit right in here.
