Well I have had chickens before, but it has been years. I am so excited. Just bought 2 buffs and 2 speckled sussex chicks today. I have two dogs, 3 guinea pigs, and 1 that I just rescued. I have a guinea pig rescue. So we started off with two, and now three. It looks like it might be four, since we can't find a home for our last rescue. I have two kids, and a great DH. I am on BYH too. Just thought I would like to talk to people who talk more about chickens. Take care and hope to get to know you guys on here.
