Hi my name is Beverly, I am new to raising my own chickens. I have helped take care of my mother in laws but decided it was time to get some of my own. I took my kids with me and we have picked out 8 Chicks. We have 1 black austorlorp, 2 Golden comets, 1 bantam and 4 straight run chicks. We picked them up on St. patricks day and so far everyone is doing well.
