Hello! My name is Jen. Our family just got our first chickens on Saturday. They are all 3 weeks old. We have 11 all together: 3 Ameraucanas, 2 Rhode Island Reds, 2 Barred Rocks, 2 Leghorns, and 2 Bantams. Their names are Buffalo, Lily, River Song, Kevin (not a boy, but named by one), Freddy (not a boy, but named by one), Cajun, Breesy, Foghorn, Nugget, Cutie, and Dumpling. Over the weekend, we started building their coop and have the frame completely done. I've been reading the Backyard Chickens forum for a while as I've been reading up on chickens to prepare for this exciting adventure, but I decided to actually sign up once we got our girls. I'm currently in school studying Family and Child Development. My husband and I have 3 children ages 11, 7, and (almost) 6. We also have 2 dogs, a miniature beagle and a plott hound. Other than chickens, my hobbies and interests include reading, fitness and nutrition, Saints football (I don't follow other NFL teams too much), television and movies (sci-fi, BBC, Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, New Girl, OITNB), hiking, and gardening.
