    Hi. My wife's been talking for a couple of years about getting some chicken. Our daughter is 7 now and she let us know that she thought chickens were a great idea. So we did it a few weeks ago. We've had them about 7 weeks now and love all of it! Even the not so great stuff like the over-enthusiastic feather nipping that led to bloodshed.
    She's okay! We got her out ASAP and let her heal (really super fast, I guess its a chick thing!) Then we popped her back in after painting everybody's butts blue.
    We'll have a new camera very soon, so as soon as I'm allowed I'll post some chick, and coop/run pics.

    Flock: 2 Australorps, 2 California Whites, 1 'Ameraucana' an Easter Egger really but, you know and 1 bantam Cochin.
    Genders: TBA

    I've been lurking around this forum for a while-- it's great! It's my Go To location for anything chickeny.
