Hi. I am a teacher at a small Montessori school in sc. We have had chickens at our school for about 5 years or so...i finally talked my other half into letting me keep a few girls at home...the whole family fell in love with them. We have 5 aurucanas and we each named one. My children cuddle and pet the girls every day...my 3 year old loves his chicken he lovingly named Coco. I' m SO glad i came across this site. It has really been helpful and fun "being around other chicken whisperers"! I am not on the computer for much of anything except work things...but i do plan of talking with you all often and reading about your wonderful chicken experiences!
