This is my 2nd flock. We moved about 5 months ago and had no choice but leave chickens behind. (It was best for chickens since we didn't have coop at new home and new owners were excited about chickens...not to mention daughter lives down street and was a vet with her own flock) About 5 weeks ago I was finally able to get a new flock. Picked up 24 babies. First week was sad when I lost 7 little ones. The place I bought them did give me new ones, which none died. I did lose a bigger one a couple weeks later, but now have 23 happy chickens. We have been real busy building them a coop and have it built enough and secure to live in new home. Still have some work to do, but mostly cosmetic stuff!! Looking forward to "chicken conversations!"
