    We are a family of 8 from Utah. Last spring, my hubby decided he would like to get chicks so we that we could have our own source of eggs. I went along with this idea, and have been pleasantly surprised by how much fun the chickens have been! We got our chickens in March 09. They were born on the 25th, making them now 19 1/2 weeks old. We have 2 RIRs, 1 Black Australorp, 1 Barred Rock, 1 Leghorn, 1 Buff Orpington, and 1 EE. Just yesterday and today, we got our first two eggs! The first we believe was laid by one of the RIRs named Daphne. The second is a little bit different shade, more pink, and we aren't sure who laid it.

    As for our other pets, we have 2 Labrador Retrievers, 1 Dwarf Hamster, 4 Gerbils, and 1 Mini Rex Rabbit.

    Looking forward to getting lots of ideas and knowledge from the BackYard Chickens forum!! [​IMG][​IMG]
