    Our adventure began with a Easter Chick gift from my Mother to my 10 year old daughter. We added a few chicks so we would have a variety.

    I found some plans on the internet, got materials on Monday and by Friday, she and I had built the coop and run.[​IMG]
    After a few weeks of letting them free range as much as possible,
    I added a couple kennels with wire and tarps across the top for security and shade.[​IMG]
    Our girls seem very happy and have started laying. [​IMG] The White Leghorns[​IMG]
    started around 19 weeks and the RIRs[​IMG] started at 23 weeks.
    We still let them free range as much as possible and try very hard to spoil them. They have been a great addition to our family and my daughter has fallen in love with the chickens.
    [​IMG] She is unbelievably excited by every new surprise. This is her with the first brown egg. [​IMG]
    She got into a little trouble for not waiting![​IMG] But they are still good friends[​IMG]
    The Buff Orpingtons were the last to start laying at about 25 weeks, but now we are in full production mode!

    The adventure continues...
