Just wanted to say hello! My family and I have just three (pet) chickens: a Rhode Island Red, An Araucana and a Silver-laced Wyandotte in Red rock country. Our feathered friends love to be held and snuggle in... happy birds, just the way we like them. I had chickens around when a teen and am quite happy to be sharing the experience with my daughter now. Yay! Hope to C ya all around!
