    Hello!

    My name is charlene and we have been wanting backyard chickens for quite some time! They will be pets and very much loved and taken care of very well. I have been doing lots of research to prepare for each week of their growth, but it never hurts to hear what others have to say according to their experience. They will arrive here in two weeks!

    Also, we can only keep 3 but the minimum order was 5. So we will be finding 2 new homes. i am researching the breeds pros and cons in order to decide whats best to keep. if you know what ones are best in the cold climate (live in Ontario Canada), most quite, friendly to people and other breeds, let me know!
