    This is day 5 of owning chickens. Roxy (later named August) Mac's first chick died last night. It was a very tiny Cochin Bantam. Very sad. Today he decided on another. This time he named her Beginning ... as in a new beginning. She is a Bantam also but this time he decided not to go with the smallest one he could find. Beginning is a real leader and is working out well. My chicks name is Olive and Jon's is Rocco Mae.
    Day 6 ...
    Everyone is happy. The chicks tried yogurt today for the first time and they loved it. Beginning the new chick is the leader. Smart as a whip and ready to leave the brooder. He has to wait for Jon to get home early next week! They are awesome!
