    Hi, I live in Queen Creek, Az on a small Ranchette in which I have 9 horses, 3 dogs and 8 chickens. I love chickens! The ones that I have are all under 4 mos. My recent additions are 2 Easter colored chicks that I bought just to keep my ill Egyptian Fayoumis warm. The Egyptian was a feed store rescue. My husband said they don't do well alone at such a young age. She was a few days old. Well she didn't make it and died in my hand last night. She would have been my ninth chicken. My 9 horses are of various breeds including a 32 yo AQHA mare that I have had for 27 years, her APHA daughter who is 14, in foal, and due in 9 days, an APHA gelding who is 14, a 2 yo Arabian filly, a 25 yo Arabian mare, a 24 yo Arabian mare, a 21 yo Arabian gelding, a 9 yo Miniature stallion and last but not least, Merlin, a 14 yo gelding. The breeds of chickens I have are 2 Barred Rock roosters who were suppose to be hens, 2 Production Red hens, 2 Americauna hens and the 2 Easter colored chicks I have no clue. All I know is that they are pink and yellow and very LOUD. Lol My three dogs are, a 9 yo female Border Collie, a 4 yo female Red Queensland Heeler and a 5 yo female Red Queensland Heeler. I love gardening, animals(can't you tell?), road trips, riding, rescuing horses and computers. I'm glad to be here and hope to learn more about the wonderful world of Chickens.

    Hello and [​IMG] from South Carolina!

    If the chicks are really loud, they're trying to tell you something! Maybe too cold, too hot, not happy about something!
