    Hello there! I am a chicken fanatic! I am getting 3 brand new baby chicks and 2 goslings sometime in the first week of April! I am getting a black Silkie, a Plymouth Rock, and a buff Orpington, I plan on taming them so I can easily hold them and play with them. I am not completely new, but I haven't owned chickens in a long time and even when I did I only collected eggs and fed them a few times a month when my parents didn't feel up to the task. We were given the chickens after a family friend didn't want them anymore but we also ended up giving up the chickens quite soon because my parents didn't want to deal with all the poop anymore. But I am quite excited about the new life coming into my home! I plan on raising the geese and chickens together so they can be together in the same coop when they are older (don't worry I did my research on this topic and I read about how geese may try and kill the chickens, so they are going to have separate runs and the chickens will have a section of the coop that the geese can't get to to ensure their safety.)
