Hi, my name is Patti, and my sweetheart is the chicken expert.I'm taking care of his chickens.Right now I have only hens, which I have named. I think that's the first step to taking care of an animal. They are so pretty, and sweet and very well behaved. The way the coop is fixed, I can't visit with them up close, so I just talk to them and hand them in what they need. I'm feeding them cooked oatmeal and potato flakes sprinkled on top. I have some sunflower seeds, too. The only Finally. There's a break in the rain, so I think I hear some chickens calling me to share my culinary delights with them.
