We started with 6 buff chicks and after losing 1 to mother nature and then another to our overzealous dog Punkin we now have 4 wonderful girls who have just started laying this October. It has been a great experience for me as well as my three children who just love to hold and feed them. Having grown up ona dairy farm I am completely out of my element but am having a great time learning all about chickens.
I have now moved all ,I say all but there are only 5, chickens into what was going to be my brand new garden shed. Oh well maybe next year my wonderful , sweet, very tolerant of my new hobby husband will build me a new garden shed.
