    Hello!
    I'm Nikki and I live in Northern CA just outside Sacramento. I have 4 1week old chicks... 3 New Hampshire Reds (Loretta, Patsy, and Peggy) and 1 Barred Rock (Harriet). My 9 year old daughter named them :) So far they have been a blast. I'm so glad I found this site, it has already been so helpful![​IMG]

    [​IMG] Glad you have joined us.

    Such cuties. Love the names your daughter picked out.

    They are so much fun. Folks who wonder why we want chickens really do miss out on a great experience.

    Welcome, Nikki! [​IMG]I'm glad you joined our community.

    I love the names of your chicks! You've picked out some nice breeds, too. Both should be very good layers of lovely large brown eggs.[​IMG]

    Welcome to BYC, Nikki. Glad you decided join to our flock. Raising chickens is a wonderful experience for children. My 7 year old granddaughter (pictured in my avatar) loves our chickens and names our hens after Disney princesses. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your chicks.
