    I am a first time chicken mom from New Mexico. I am a "City kid" learning how to be a "country kid". How we ended up with our chicken was a simple science project for my 6th grader. They had the chance this year to hatch some eggs and my son's science teacher let the students keep one of the chickens they hatched in class, with parental consent. My husband and I thought this would be a good thing so we signed the consent form and home came Peep. Peep (aka: the Chicken we call Dog), has been in our home since May 27th of this year and has been an interesting pet.
