HI..... thought I would change my introduction..........I live in Las Vegas and keep chickens in the back yard. I have 4 beautiful buff girls. We started out with 10 because my husband was afraid not all would live as babies. They survived.....and there was only 1 beautiful rooster which I gave to a friend that lives near the mountains in Las Vegas since I live in town and have neighbors. We then sold 4 hens and kept five. We just lost one due to an accident. I also have 2 gold fish, 1 red devil, gerbil, and a pug mix. I have lived in Las Vegas for 4 years moved from MI for a teaching position (special education). We decided to get our own chickens to have our own eggs. Our chicks are friendly and my son can pick them up, kiss and hug them, he is our egg collector.
