    Well after having to decide on a different breed of chicken then i had really wanted i went with 3 brown Sussex and 2 Delawares. Also having to sit in city hall for 20 minutes getting the OK to have the girls in city limits. After all was said and done though i have them finally. I have pictures but not on the computer yet, so i will have to post them at a later time. Now i wait patiently for them to be old enough to lay. I was told that should be sometime in October. Right now though i call them my pigs disguised as chickens. I didn't know little things could eat so much!!!! Hopefully will be posting pictures soon though!!!

    Ohyes. Chickens eat A LOT. When I first got my four girls, they would eat almost an entire food trough of chick feed.


    Do you name your chickens? If so, do they have names yet?

    Yes they have names, at least most of them do, we have Henny, Shelia and Bujo(i dont know either i didnt name that one). Henny and Bujo are 2 of the brown sussex and shelia is one of the white delawares but im at a loss for names of the other two. Half the time i cant even tell them apart!!!!
