Hello from new Backyard Chicken Raisers!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hi friends,

We just got four baby chicks at the end of March 2016 and just moved the 2-month old chickens into their new home in our back yard.

We have two Buff Orphington and two Barred Rock. One of the BC seems larger than the rest and chirps loudly... wondering if we have a rooster? Hope not!

Anyway, it was the funniest thing--- the chickens, all four of them, spent their first night last night out of the brooder (that was in our garage) and in their new home. They all packed in together into ONE roosting box! I bet they were nice and warm.. took a goof five minutes for them to settle in, and then they just peeped in contentment.

We are glad to have these new pets and look forward to some lovely eggs in  a few months!

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
