Hello all!! I've been following this website for years, and finally just got three of my first baby chicks yesterday! I'm expecting 2-3 more in a few days. So far, it's been such fun! I raised chickens as a kid, but haven't had them for a couple of decades. We finished the coop earlier this week, and it turned out even greater than I expected! I had the vision, and my father had the amazing woodworking skills to help me make it into a reality. Along with the help of my husband and other friends, we got it finished in just 2 days! We live in a neighborhood in Dallas, TX, and the neighbors love it, too! So far, I have 3 baby chicks: Daisy (a Speckled Sussex) Darcy (a Cuckoo Maran) And Ginger (a Rhode Island Red) Our cat, Keebler, is helping to keep an eye on the little ladies. (with close supervision, of course) And later this week, I'm getting 2 Ameraucanas and possibly a Silkie. Still not sure if I want to get a baby Silkie, since there's no guarantee it'll be a female! But I'm thinking about it... Looking forward to getting to know you all better!
