Hello all, Kay here from the central valley. I finally decided that I was tired of buying eggs of dubious quality and age, so, I have boughten myself five little hen chicks, who are diligently feathering out under their heat lamp. I fear I am not a breed specific person, though in a couple years I might like to try and get some Icelandics. I am working on a little yard tractor for the girls when they are big enough, and a small coop house to keep them safe and out of trouble. I will do up some pics as I build the things if anyone is interested, I think I have spent about $18 so far on the materials, with just the screen netting left to pick up for the tractor. At 6 feet by 2 feet, it should be okay for my few girls to tidy up around the yard, and entertain the cats!
