    Hello! My name is Brooke, and I have been lurking around this site for over a year. There is SO much great information on here!
    We have been thinking about getting chickens since we moved out of town onto about 50 acres, and finally (today!) got a coop, which ended up coming with 5 surprise chickens! As of right now, I have no idea what breeds they might be, or even if they are girls or boys. The people we bought the coop from had been given some mystery eggs to hatch, and decided that if the person that bought their coop wanted, they could have the chickens as well. Apparently, they are all about 3-4 months old, and I hope to get some good pictures in the daylight tomorrow, and see if anyone can help me figure out what they are.
    My mom has raised chickens as long as I can remember, and I'm pretty embarrassed to admit that I don't know a whole heck of a lot about it. For some reason, getting out of town onto some acreage has awakened the inner "farmer" in me, ha ha! I planted my first ever garden last year, and did my first canning, with great success. Now we are on to chickens. My 7 year old daughter has been begging for 2 years to have her very own pet chickens that she can take to the fair, so she is going to be given a fair amount of responsibility in this new endeavor.
    Anyhow, I really look forward to getting to know people on here, and hopefully learning TONS about our new chickens!
