    Hi From Florida! I found this site when looking for answers to questions I have about raising backyard pet chickens. My hubby and I have 8 chickens and they are all about 18 weeks old. My hubby wanted chickens for about the last 3 or 4 years and I kept saying no...until this year. We have a large animal and kid brood (3 children, 5 dogs, 4 cats, 2 guinea pigs and 2 birds) that all live inside, so I was leery about adding any more animals to our lives, but I love him, so I caved. I actually think I like the chickens more them him which says a LOT! Because he adores them! I am the primary keeper during the week because he leaves for work at 5am, so I let them out at 6:30am, feed, water, and talk or sing to them all week. I have forged quite a bond with those darn chickens! They are fun, social and I have really enjoyed getting to know them and they LOVE our five year old daughter! I guess that's it! Hello and I look forward to posting!
