    [FONT=georgia,palatino]We are first time chicken farmers, so right now this is one big experiment to us.
    We started off with one hen and one rooster. We think the rooster is a Barred Rock mix and the female is a leghorn/rock mix.

    Here is our rooster " Eugene Crabbs (a.k.a. Mr. Crabbs)

    And here is our hen "Pearl"
    I wish I would have found this site before getting my chickens, or before building our coop. None the less I am glad that I have found it.
    We were given our chickens by a friend's mom, and boy was that not a good idea!
    In the short time that we have had them (4 months) we have gone through mites, worms and a molting!!
    After they have been in good health for awhile, we decided to bring in some company

    [FONT=georgia,palatino]Two days before the chicks came in Pearl decided to go broody!
    So it is possible that we will have more chicks, but with the temps so hot outside I do not know if any will hatch. Chickens truly are addicting!

    Any ways here is another picture of the new babies! It is crazy how fast they grow up!
    [FONT=georgia,palatino]Starting from the top left corner and working clock wise are: Polak, White Crested Black Polish ; Glen, Buff Silkie ; Pearl Jr., White Leghorn? ( I get confused on the yellow ones they look similar); Remmy, our other Buff Silkie; Betty, Red Star ( my buddy); Peach, Buff Orpington; and Squishy, Brown Leghorn.

    My babies at 4 weeks! They are growing up so fast!
    [FONT=georgia,palatino]We are glad that you stopped by if you have any advice or comments for us please just leave a message!

    [FONT=tahoma,arial,helvetica,sans-serif]GOD BLESS and have a great day!![/FONT]
