Hi I'm new to BYC and excited to learn more about my 3 chickens/hens. I have a 5 1/2 month old Black Sex Link hen, and two 2 week old Wyandotte chicks/hens. Our daughter has learned all about chickens at school this year and raised 7 flocks at her HS, and bought her own chick 5 1/2 months ago and raised her with the other chickens at the school. She had to come home with us 2 weeks ago as school was getting ready to end/close for the summer. We bought our first coop for her, and also purchased two more chicks to raise so that she did not have to be alone - especially since she was raised with the last 3 flocks of chickens at the school. So our new backyard adventure with chickens has begun. We have 3 kids and 2 small dogs also, and now 3 very cute and lively chickens!
