    I hope you built a big coop because if you hang around here long enough, those 3 chicks will double and triple.

    I started out with 5 now I have 13 showbirds, 25 laying hens and 28 chicks.

    Have fun with your little fuzzybutts and I look forward to reading your posts.

    RIR are the best layers ever!! [​IMG] They also have great personalities, mine happens to be at the top of the pecking order [​IMG] She is great and keeps everyone in check, I love it!! Have fun with your new chickens [​IMG] only thing I can say is hold them all the time while they are young and when they get older they willl follow you around everywhere!! It really is so much fun!!

    Our RIR is at the bottom of the pecking order, probably because she steals everyone's treats. A real chowhound! She is also quite tame, one of the first to jump in our laps when we sit down. I know people will try to talk you into getting more, but personally, I think 3 is perfect for a backyard flock. Best of luck with your new project! [​IMG]
