    We live in Olympia Washington, we have 5 Rhode Island Reds and a Barred Rock. I bought them when the where 7 days old and raised them with my bf. This is the first time either of us have raised chickens... its super fun, and our children and myself love having them around they are so sweet.

    Hello there Dirt and welcome! Glad you're enjoying those new chickens, and isn't it great for kids to be able to experience the joy of raising farm animals?!

    Take care, and glad you joined!

    It was nice for the boys to help and see what its like to put time and effort into raising something that gives back with something else besides just love and that hard work pays off. We also had 3 pygmy goats and a nubian that i have rehomed so they had been around farm animals for a while but never chickens, it was amazing to see the look on my 5 year olds face when he found the first egg. its very rewarding
