    I have never had chickens before and decided that it was time. We purchased 9 chickens, 2 Polish, 2 Silver Leghorns, 1 Buff Brahma, 1 Blue Wyandotte, and my ULTIMATE Favorite White Frizzle. I had no clue what we were really getting into or how much fun "the girls" would be!!!

    They were only about a week old [​IMG]when we got them and raised them for over a month in the house. Finally, my husband and I built them their own private house. (I will post pictures of their giant coop later.)

    About 2 months into our adventure I learned that I do NOT have 9 "girls" as I thought. I have 7 girls and 2 boys!!! At least so far. I hope that the other 7 are still girls in a few weeks!

    Each of our Chickens have a name. We have Fluffy, Zoe, Chleo, Henrietta, Meanstein (one of the boys) Rod (Who is a girl!), Modelo, Especial, & Einstein. [​IMG]Einstein is my favorite and the white frizzle who really lives up to his name! He is the smartest chicken and comes to me when I call him. He even helps me round up the girls when it is bedtime. Einstein happily climbs in my lap when I sit down and follows me around anywhere I go. He even gently eats out of my hand while all of the other girls peck hard!! I NEVER knew that chickens could have such a personality.

    I have had more fun with my chickens and really could not imagine my life without them! I have already used this site to guide me in my adventure and I look forward to being able to interact and continue learning from all of you!!!
