    Hi all! I am new to chickens. I got 4 chicks in May for my 2nd grade students. When school was out the chicks came to live on top of my entertainment center, and now they are lovely, laying girls! I basically built their coop out of a plastic playhouse and some pallets. Parmasean is a Rhode Island Red, Pat and Ladybird are Easter Eggers, and Tandoori is some sort of Black Rock mix. Just before school was out, there was an incident with Tandoori and one of my 5 dogs. She recovered, and is now our largest hen and our first layer. I found BackYardChickens.com through many, many online searches to help me figure out how to care for the new chicks!

    I currently live in New Mexico, but plan to move to Alaska in the next few months. I am looking for others who have moved to Alaska, and those in the Fairbanks area who have pet chickens.
