Hello from Indiana! Last summer I had just moved back to the US from Germany when my dad asked me if I could take care of a chick for him while he went on vacation. The chick had hatched under a turkey (something of a mystery) but the turkey hen didn't want anything to do with it. I fell in love! "It" ended up being a "he" a few months later. When I moved to a farm house last spring, my dad gave me a couple hens from his flock to keep my rooster company. Last night I got two more chicks from him (my dad) that hatched under some ducks under his barn but were then rejected - my dad's farm is pretty free-range, as you've probably guessed. I'm still learning a LOT about chickens, but I found this site and figured I use it so much I might as well make a profile here! When I'm not obsessively checking to make sure my rooster hasn't wandered off to torment the neighbors and my broody hen hasn't eaten my new chicks, I enjoy reading, taking care of my cats (three in the house, five in the barn) and cooking. Edit: Obviously I don't know what sex the chicks will be ... crossing my fingers they're female ... or at least not both male!
