I am Butterbean and I live in the South. I have just gotten my first chicks. I have Rhode Island Reds, Dominickers and Americaunas. Couldn't decide which one, so got all 3! The Dominickers are very friendly and just took to me immediately. They are 2 1\\2 weeks old. This has been a learning experience, but look forward to it. Be patient with me, I am learning!
