We are new to chickens but my kids really want to do 4h and I really wanted some birds. Lol. Daddy got out voted. My daughters are enjoying the process of learning all about them and their life cycles. We currently have some eggs in the incubator that a friend generously gave us. I can't wait to read and learn more. We are in the middle of the country on 10 acres so they will have loads of room but we have a lot of predators that we get to deal with. Hopefully we can do our best to keep them all safe. Excited to embark on this new adventure as a family.
