Hello! I'm an complete newb to chickens. My 8 year old daughter and my 3 year old son convinced me we needed chickens just before Easter. We went to TSC to just look at them and came home with 2 RIR's. I've had geese before but never chickens. I never dreamed I would have chickens. I thought I had lost my mind when I went home with them but they are great! several days old: The ugly stage: I went Turkey hunting and my daugther thought it would be neat to cover them in Turkey feathers: This was at about 5 weeks old: They are now about 7 weeks old and have become part of the family. I have to get that coop built this weekend!
