We came across this site when we decided we wanted to add chickens to our family. We got some great ideas for building our coop. We got 4 chicks, one for each of our children. 1 Barred Rock (Chica), 1 EE (Cocoa - turned out to be a roo), and 2 RIRs (Buffy & Rosey). We're enjoying having them and all their personality! We were sad to see Cocoa go though because we're not allowed roosters where we live (DFW area). He started crowing this weekend so we took him back to the feed store where we got him and one of the workers there fell in love and said he was taking him home! lol Our chicks are 12wks old today!
