    HELLO to ALL!

    I NEVER is a MILLION years thought I would be so "stoked" about chickens. I ask myself do I need a LIFE OR WHAT?! [​IMG]

    BUT....I am the VERY PROUD owner of 5 GIRLS![​IMG]
    Dorothy our Rhode Island Red
    Florence our Silver Laced Wyandotte
    Peaches our Black Australorp
    Dolly our Buff Orpington
    AND last but NOT least.....Rosie our Barred Rock

    We picked these breeds for their winter hardiness and for their egg laying. I hope we chose well since this is our FIRST time with chickens after a lifetime of wanting them.

    They are ALL BEAUTIFUL and very loved...I know, I know...LOVED? But really..they are FUN! It's so good to be here and introduce myself. It's nice to see I am not the ONLY chicken fanatic out here in the world.
    My girls are all 6 weeks old....we ordered 5 thinking we could "lose" one BUT they are all doing GREAT and thriving.
    OH YES...I also can add 2 more "children" to my list...a VERY SPOILED husband AND Pyrenean Shepherd to the list as well:D
    NO "real" children.
