6Chickens in St. Charles, IL.
3 fancy little hens, 1 Silkie Rooster who looks like an alien. Chickens are lovely pets.
Joined BYC forum 1 year after accidentally learning to keep chickens as pets.
3 Boys brought home chicks. Husband/Dad said "Ok but they won't last long". Now we love our chickens and they have names.
This one is Chloe.
Yes, we checked with the City Code. It is not against the law to keep chickens in St. Charles, IL. But it is unlawful to sell, barter or trade any chick that has been dyed an unnatural color.
This is "Roaster" our EE hen, smiling for a photo with her friend Mr. Peeps, our Silkie Roo.
Why "6 chickens in st. charles"?. Because if your kids are lazy they won't pick up eggs daily. Some of the eggs will hatch. Our 2 EE babies have FINALLY found a good, new home. Hooray!https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/uploads/25976_09012009232.jpg
