My name is Angel from Arizona. My husband and I picked up seven chicks at the feed store last year at Easter time. I don't know what breeds they are. We started with two blacks, two yellow and three brownish red ones. They all turned out to be hens. Unfortunately we've lost three to dog attacks. We treat them like pets and love them very much. I've been visiting this site for weeks now and love it. I was just reading about horsejody's ordeals with the ridgebacks. I'm so glad she won her case.
