    Here is a pic of one of the first chickens i ever had. My grandpa was getting rid of his chickens and asked me if i wanted some, so i took some. she was reli tame you could hold your arm out and she would jump up on it. the same night we got her we also got 2 other hens and 1 roster. my mom thought the ro was too lough so we took him back. on the way back home from dropping the ro off the white chicken (in the pic above) escaped from our old dog kennel that has 8foot high sides and then ran across the road and under a pine tree in the neighbors yard (aprox. 500 feet away) luckly my mom saw her otherwise we would have no clue where she went.

    [​IMG]Here is a pic of my lil chicks. They just happened to line up when i took it. Not sure of the breeds we just got some left over chickens from a mill close by. the tan one on the right side we called "lil guy" because he was the smallest. my sister thought it was a dumb name. turned out he reli was a guy! figured it out when he stared crowing.

    Here is a pic of whitey sleeping on my arm (same chicken thats in the pic above)

    lil guy is a buff orpington, they are such a docile , friendly breed. My #1 hen Plucky died last saturday, as the mites just did a number on her poor lil body, and all the other chickens were beating her up , by the time i thought of washing her and combing them out , she was much weaker than i am and i'm going thru chemo therapy, and she didn't make it, and i am mourning her and feel i let her down. Your whitey has a comb that hangs to the side just like Plucky's did, also she loved close up photos of herself. R.I.P

    I like the last one..... and that is a very clever idea of converting your old dog house into a coop! And I have two buff orpington hens, and Li'l Guy looks kind of like them! So you never know!

    I love the Pictures of your Chickens, the little white one on your arm looks so sweet sleeping there. The hen on the small branch of the tree looks like she is enjoying being high up and safe. I do like the way you have reconverted your dog house into a chicken coop.
    Thank you so much for sharing your pictures.
