    Hello everyone ! We got our chicks back in june. They are now about 22 weeks. We have black australourps and buff Orpington's. Just this week i noticed one of my buffs started squatting when i reached down to pet her. So we are waiting on our first eggs [​IMG][​IMG] This is all so exciting and they are quite entertaining [​IMG] I didnt expect raising chickens to be so much fun lol but i love it and my ladies [​IMG]
