Well we own 2chickens now- started with 4, one is an ameracana(sp?) and a white one. we are obviously new to chickens. my husband was raised with them but im a first timer! i bought them october 23rd 2011, so you can figure how old they are. we live in Oklahoma. i also have 2 horses Gunner and Sosha. oh my chickens are Lucy and Daisy. they are so funny! i have managed to aquire animals with very interesting personalities! we also have an 11 year old son Wyatt.
