Last year a lady gave us two hens, a rooster, and six chicks. We have grown to love each and every one of them and have named them all. The sounds of happy chickens is soothing to my soul. Over the year I have watched these darlings interact and started a blog about Chicken Relationships . We also have have three dogs and four cats. The interaction of these critters fascinates me. I feel so lucky to find this wonderful forum.
