So I’m new to chickens, honestly they sorta freaked me out, but my oldest daughter (11) started a snack stand in the front yard with the purpose of making enough to purchase chickens. I reluctantly began to research breeds and chicken care which has led me here multiple times. We settled on Brahma’s and got 7 light Brahma pullets (hopefully), and a straight run Buff Brahma. We lost one chick a few days in but the other seven are getting big and move to their outside coop tomorrow. Thus far I’ve enjoyed having chickens and even started a mealworm farm to be able to give them plenty of healthy treats. We look forward to having fresh eggs from our girls this fall. I live in central Arkansas and have four children who I’m sure will lose interest leaving all the chicken duties to me.
