OUR CHICKEN COOP PROJECTThe StoryMy DH and I decided to get some chickens because I like animals, and he likes to be self-sufficient. Isn't that just the story of our lives? Anyhow, we wanted to build a chicken coop ourselves because we thought it would be cheaper. In the end, this thing was a whole lot of work, but was most likely cheaper than one of this size (8' X 10') we would have bought online. I haven't checked because, frankly, I don't think I want to know at this point! I'm just...
Other PetsHere are our other babies! I'll write some more information about them soon! ********************************************* Feral - our fat cat: Feral is Mammas’ son (she’s the next cat down on this page) and he is absolutely gigantic. I have had cats all my life, and this one has really changed the way I deal them, let me tell you. This boy’s fatty eating disorder has made it so I have to feed the kitties specific amounts of food only in the morning and at night, I have to...
CHEEKS, OUR EASTER EGGERThis is my page about Cheeks, our easter egger chick. She's still pretty young, so I will be adding pictures as she grows! She is a very needy little girl, and definatley thinks of me as her "mommy." She is always calling for me, and when I go into the coop to see her she runs over and jumps up on my arm or legs and falls fast asleep. She is the oddest little thing, but I absolutely love her for it! I can't wait to see what she looks like when she grows up! Day1:...
CHOCO, OUR SILKIEThis is my page about Choco, our Silkie chick. She's still pretty young, so I will be adding pictures as she grows! Even though we spent a lot of time handling all of our chicks to be sure that they loved people, Choco is still a lot less interested in humans and petting than any of our other girls.

CLUCK, OUR ROAD ISLAND REDThis is my page about Cluck, our Road Island Red chick. She's still pretty young, so I will be adding pictures as she grows! This is a very smart girl. My husband picked her out and he's become very attached to her, as well as her to him. You can tell she knows that he's her daddy, as she runs out to him the moment she sees him. Adorable!

FOSTER, OUR LEGHORNThis is my page about Foster, our Leghorn chick. For a supposedly skiddish breed, she sure does love people! I thought that she might be a "boring" breed but I'm finding that I love her for her interesting personality. I'd say she's definately the smartest of all our chicks.

DOMINIQUE, OUR DOMINIQUEThis is my page about Dominique, our Dominique chick. So, yeah, I know we weren't very original with her name, but we still thought it was cute. I had actually planned on getting a barred rock but someone told me that Dominique's were better with confinement. Only time will tell! I can say, though, that she is extremely sweet and always comes running for food. She's a little piggy, and definately the short, plump type more than the tall, big type. Day 1: Day 3:Week1:...
TheIvoryKitty's Page Welcome to my page! I had a flock or two when I was a kid but this is the first time I'm doing it myself. I bought my 5 little day-old chicks from MyPetChicken.com and received them on August 23, 2011. They are growing so quickly I can hardly believe it! It seems like every time I turn around they have new colors in their feathers and they're making all sorts of new sounds. Each of my girls has a different personality, which I absolutely love. My DH and I built an 8' x...
ABOUT US Hello world! My name is Chantal and my DH’s name is Joey. We are youngins – we know! Usually people are surprised. We live in California, though we plan on moving to Texas or Arizona sometime soon. I just recently received bachelors degree in International Business this past December 2011, and Joey is working on becoming a police officer. I plan to work in the computer science field, probably with computer programming, but perhaps in management. We aren’t terribly interesting...
COOP PICTURES Welcome to the pictures of our chicken coop! It is 8' X 10' and we built it specifically for our 5 little girls! We didn't have any plans or anything so we sort of just guessed how it should have been. I've added a really extensive page to my BYC homepage describing how we built this thing! Please look at it if you have any questions! There are somethings that I would change about this coop now - for example, I would have made the nesting boxes a bit lower for our silkie, and...
