    hi, my name is Angie and I have stepped into life as a chicken mom only about 2 weeks ago, when my friend found a chicken roaming her yard that needed a home. I took her in about a week ago. I have no idea what breed she is but she is the sweetest, smallest chicken I’ve ever met. (We named her Henritta hah) anyway, I’m glad I found somewhere my questions on Henritta can be answered:) I found BYC when I was looking up what feed to buy her hah.

    Hi Angie,is she your only chicken? Just asking because chickens are "flock" birds,they like other chickens for comfort,while you may be a wonderful "mom" to her,she's going to need another chicken or two...as much love as humans can provide them,nothing takes the place of living with "other chickens " ...

    Hi Angie! Post a picture and we might be able to tell you what breed she is.

    Yes I am aware that chickens do better in a flock and I’m looking into getting her a few companions:)
