    Hello! After reading everything I could get my hands on about backyard chickens, I have added a Barred Rock and a Leghorn to the growing list of animals I have at home and in my classroom...4 turtles, 2 hamsters, 2 guinea pigs, 3 cats, and 6 rabbits all in the suburbs of Katy!
    I have only had my chickens for 3 weeks and they are due to start laying in about 3-4 weeks, and I already want more!
    My kids think I have lost my mind. hehe
