Hi Everyone, this is my first time doing this. I have been reading this web site for about 4 months now and am very excited to be finally doing this! The way we got our chickens was kinda funny in the beginning now we have 2 beauiful 4 month old RIR. For Mothers day dinner my husband was told to bring a chicken,well the smart guy that he is decided to go to our local farm and garden store and buy a chicken to carry in. Well come to find out after reading this site you can't buy just one chicken. so we went and looked at the chicks and let my daughter pick 1 chick out. Nope they said you have to buy 2 or they will be lonley. So that is my story and I can't wait until they start laying eggs! They are great pets and very relaxing to watch after a hard day at work. I guess that is all for now.
