    Hi! My name is Barbie and I'm a first-time chicken mom! I have 7 7-week old chickens and I can already tell I'm gonna be a crazy chicken lady. My husband thinks I already am :)

    All of my girls have names and very distinct personalities which I love seeing emerge more everyday. A few of my favs: Coco Chanel is the most beautiful Easter-egger and a very quirky girl. She's always 'screeched' not cheeped and won't touch treats - even mealworms! Vera, my barred rock, is soooo sweet - she loves to be held. And then there's Amelia - the crabby, skittish, finger-pecking Buff Orpington... Seriously tho, I thought these were supposed to be the golden retrievers of the chicken world lol!

    Anywho, it's been a dream of mine for years to own chickens and when we bought our lovely 3 acre plot just east of central Kentucky last year I knew I finally had my chance. Looking forward to learning a lot, watching my girls grow up, and finally collecting some amazing backyard-fresh eggs![​IMG]

    Nice to meet you Barbie. Tell your husband, he is isn't immune, we have many Crazy Chicken Guys, along with the women here. Are you sure your girl is a Buff Orp? Maybe she woke up on the wrong side of the nest. Well their are exceptions to everything.

    Welcome to the Backyard chickens flock.
