    Hi. My husband and I became chicken people when our teenage son showed up with three older chicks that he had been given in a cage. We hurriedly built a henhouse and studied up on them. Sadly, all three of our first chickens started crowing and we don't have them any more.
    About 10 days ago a neighbor gave us three hens, who are molting right now. Then our cold front hit on top of the re-location so I don't know when they will ever lay again. We're just trying to keep them warm right now.
    Over the weekend we were gifted with a younger bird that we are trying to introduce to our little established flock.

    We're total newbies but excited about our chickens, and happy to be in the group! Alison

    Check out the Learning center - it's a great first step to chicken knowledge.

    You are so right! I am close to knitting them little scarves. My kids better start giving me grand-children or this will happen ;)
