Hi my name is Ronda. I have Chatecler chicks right now. I had a beautiful folck a few weeks ago but a raccoon got into their coup and killed them all. They were my pets and I cried when I saw the cruelty. We reinforced the whole bottom area and I bought new ones from a farm nearby. I've had chickens before but never this bread, they are beautiful, friendly and good for our weather which tends to be cold and snowy. I also have 2 Mucovy. The drake we leave out now and there has been no "extra" animals around. We a rabbit and a horse. We are just starting out as a small farm. Before I joined this site I really learned so much about the care of such tiny chicks, I always left they up to their moms. You all have a great day!
