    Hi Everyone!!

    My name is Karen and i am from Mass. My son came home one day with 5 eggs from the family down the street and said he was going to hatch them. I laughed at him and said he was crazy!! Well, 21 days later Jimmy hatched! Unfortunetly he was the only one that hatched, so i went to our local grain store and purchased 2 Rhode Island Red chicks. Since then i've been in love with our new hobby. I bought 1 more chick from the grain store, and adopted 5 juvenlile chickens from a local farmer. I also ordered 4 babies from my pet chicken. Unfortunetly one chick from my pet chicken didn't make it. I know have 12 chickens all together, and they are a few different breeds. I have 2 Rhode Island Reds, 4 black barred rocks, 1 white crested black polish, 2 White Plymouth Rocks, 2 Buff Orpingtons, and 1 black unknown breed. I look forward to talking about my feathered friends with everyone and hearing stories from you!

    Here is a few pics of the flock:


    My new babies. Unfortunately we lost one White Crested.
