    Hey y'all!

    I'm a new Chicken Mama. We started out with what we were told were comets, but, i don't think they are. That was on the 24th of May. Then we got mixture of chicks from a place NC, on May 31st. We got a mixture Americaunas, Swedish Flower Hens, Legbars, and Silkies. I am in love. We have some crude coops up, for right now, and now i want to make them all fancy. :) Who knew this was going to be so addictive!

    Keeping these babies, for me, is great therapy. I see a lot of the ugly side of humanity in my job, which i really do love, so working with them Haas been very grounding for me.

    I have very much enjoyed reading all of the advice in these forums. I've been working a lot, so never had a moment to post and introduce myself. I look forward to hounding y'all for more.

    Much love and peace![​IMG]

    What darling chicks you have. Looks like they need to move to larger digs. You might want to put a wire cover over the brooder, they will be trying to fly out and won't be able to find their way back.

    I forgot to mention that we had already moved them. The pictures are from when we first got them. Thank you for the tip, though!
