April 18, 2019 Newbie Q & A I'm not new to chickens at all but it wasn't until late 2016 that I adopted 3 baby chicks from a friend. They are really such fascinating birds. We have there are 3 beautiful hens with us. An Americana with fluffy cheeks, and two sister Barred Rock hens. I love observing them and letting them wander around the backyard while gardening. I've grown more love for them. My hobbies include Archery, making art and listening to many kinds of music out there. Besides the hens, we also have a chihuahua mommy and her chi-weenie son ( the dachshund father past away last year). I've come to backyardchickens.com before for tips and fun reading but only join now fora reason that i'll add in another post. Hope to exchange fun facts and our love for chickens with the rest of the community.
