    HI. We got our first chickens in March. They are really my sons chickens (he is 11) but as his mom, I make sure he is taking good care of them. We call him our Chicken Whisperer..the chickens love him! He can walk in the coop and they lay at his feet! [​IMG]
    We started out with 3 Buff Orphingtons and 2 Red sex links...all straight run, but we lucked out and all are hens. We ended up giving one of the Sex linked to a friend who lost his hen. My nephew gave us a Millie Fleur d'uccle rooster and my son is showing him at the local fair.
    We recently (week and a half) got 5 straight run millie fleur babies.
    We love our chickens!

    Welcome! I think I know you from Drakes! We talked Mille fleurs?? Any way, [​IMG] there is an awesome NC thread on here where you can chat with other "neighbors"! They are great people, you'll like them! If you are the lady I met at Drakes, maybe I'll see you tomorrow?!
