My husband and I bought three chickens today (two golden-laced wyandottes and one black australorp). We've never had chickens before, but we are excited for the experience and the eggs. Our new girls are about a year and a half old and from a ranch about an hour from our house. They are healthy and trying to adjust to their new quarters. Our nearly-two-year-old sat next to the run for about an hour this morning watching them cluck about. What great entertainment!
