I am really sad.. I can't keep my chickens. I vow that I will have my own tiny backyard chicken flock but now is not the time. Nobody is supportive and since I work a full day and take care of two boys on my own.. it's just one more thing to feel like I can't do a good enough job at. My son thinks they are dolls and I've had to ban him from them.. so my family thinks "What's the point if the kids cant play with them? That's why you got them right?" Ugh! I only have five and four of them are bantams, one is a standard pullet. I love them! They are precious and already have little personalities. I think at least one is a cockerel, the others look like they may be pullets. Anyway, the main thing is I can't afford to build or buy a coop! I could build a scrap-shack but my landlord, as sweet as she is, probably wouldnt like that since my yard is visible to a few other houses. I know that I could spend a ton of time trying to make one from free pallets but I have almost as little time as I have money. I don't see when I could do all that. Please, if you are wanting more chickens and are close enough for me to drive to (I live in Mineola, Tx - North of Tyler) then let me know. If you think the little bantams will be picked on though.. you may not want them. They are precious. They are old enough to go into a coop now I think so you won't have to bother keeping them in your dining room like I do! ha ha. I have another post on here, asking if anybody knows what they are.. I'll see if I can find it and put a link on here so you can see each on up close.
