    Hi Everyone,
    I’m a Dutch (The Netherlands) immigrant (city slicker), who moved with my husband to Manitoba, Canada in 2006. We bought a (hobby) farm in 2009.
    Last year we build a chicken coop with an inside coop with 5 nesting boxes and an outside, so they can wobble around.
    We got 10 chickens who were just 1 day old when we picked them up. We wanted chickens just for the eggs, but now I really like them. They are so funny and sweet and always so happy to see me. I can pet them and pick them up and they will fall asleep in my arms if I let them. I have no idea what breed they are. Their brown hens.
    I hope to find lots of info and funny stories on this forum.
