Hello from Kentucky!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi! My name is Barbie and I'm a first-time chicken mom! I have 7 7-week old chickens and I can already tell I'm gonna be a crazy chicken lady. My husband thinks I already am :-)

All of my girls have names and very distinct personalities which I love seeing emerge more everyday. A few of my favs: Coco Chanel is the most beautiful Easter-egger and a very quirky girl. She's always 'screeched' not cheeped and won't touch treats - even mealworms! Vera, my barred rock, is soooo sweet - she loves to be held. And then there's Amelia - the crabby, skittish, finger-pecking Buff Orpington... Seriously tho, I thought these were supposed to be the golden retrievers of the chicken world lol!

Anywho, it's been a dream of mine for years to own chickens and when we bought our lovely 3 acre plot just east of central Kentucky last year I knew I finally had my chance. Looking forward to learning a lot, watching my girls grow up, and finally collecting some amazing backyard-fresh eggs!

Nice to meet you  Barbie. Tell your husband, he  is isn't immune,   we have many Crazy Chicken  Guys,  along with the  women  here. Are you sure your  girl is a Buff Orp?  Maybe she woke up on the wrong side of the nest. Well their are exceptions to everything.

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
