    Hi everyone,

    my name is Yvonne, and I live with my kids (6 and 8) just east of Tampa, Fl. After a trip to New Hampshire to a lovely B&B that had a few chickens during the summer we decided that a few chickens would be perfect. As we live in a deed restricted community we have to be a bit careful, but we are risking it :)

    I started building the coop several weeks ago, and with it almost being done I got 4 chicks 2 weeks ago.
    1 Rhode Island Red, 1 White Brahma, 1 Silver laced Wyandotte and 1 Easter Egger / Ameraucana (The chick was sold to me as Ameraucana at the local feed store, but I'm not sure it is not an Easter Egger)

    The Brahma is about 5-6 weeks old, the others about 3 and they are doing great. The Wyandotte is the sweetest thing ever, every chance she gets he flies onto by arm or shoulder, very cute.

    I've attached a pic of their first day outside yesterday
