    Hi there, we started keeping chickens in May. They are spoiled, friendly, and try to get in the house any chance they get. We are in the UP of Michigan. Thanks for having us!

    We currently have nine hens and one rooster. Five of the hens we acquired yesterday. We're looking forward to using the site.
