    Our first chickens!
    My boyfriend and I thought why not get some cute little fuzzies, like chickens. We got them at the local feed store and kept them in our room for the first few months with a heat lamp. Now they're 5 1/2 months old and yield about four eggs a day. Sometimes less, for now they live in a make shift coop as the actual coop is almost finished. We still love them just as much as when they were four days old. Actually, I'd say we love them more. We both hold them and talk to them everyday, I even wrote a song for them. They're our feathered family members. Don't get me wrong, I love the occasional nugget, but we could never hurt our little cheeps. I look forward to sharing stories and getting advice from this community. Check out our pictures! We'll upload the coop pictures soon.
