    Kinda new to chickens...permanent home and more space this time. The last time I had chickens we only got a couple of eggs from them before I had to find them new homes, that was about seven years ago. Today I have 5 baby chicks. I did have 6 but Little Peep died. It's been a week and I'm still sad. She was a grey Silkie. Tulip is a Barred Rock, Cinnamon is a Road Island Red, Annikan Skybalker is white with some black spots - can't remember which breed, Dr. Doom is white and I can't remember her breed either, last is Daphne a Buff Orpington. I came across BYC on Pinterest, which I'm addicted to and I expect I'll become just as addicted to this site.
    I enjoy diy projects and scrapbooking. I also like hanging out with my family which consists of one husband, three daughters, two cats, two dogs, two turtles, one snake, one fish and five chickens :D
