    I've been reading and exploring BYC for a short period of time and love all the great info.
    I have 3 chickens and I LOVE LOVE my girls! I call them my chick chicks! I do plan on getting more, but I'm reading up on temperaments because I have 2 little boys. Looking forward to meeting new chicken friends!

    Before adding more birds, read up on isolation and integration so things go as smoothly as possible. Here's one article about the subject from the Learning Center:
