    I have one Golden-Laced Wyandotte named Paprika and two Silver-Laced Wyandotte's named Pepper and Rosemary.

    I did a google search on raising chicks.

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies?
    I'm really into gardening right now. This is only my second year with my own vegetable garden. I'm very excited.

    (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share.
    My name is Maxine. My spouse and 3 children just moved to a new house. We're still unpacking and settling in. No other pets currently. I work one day a week at Trader Joes, otherwise, I am a SAHM.
    It's been a dream of mine to have chickens. I love eggs!

    Welcome from the southern part of the West Coast!! (SoCal)

    LOVE the Wyandottes. They are beautiful chickens, and good layers. My kids' most favorite thing is to collect eggs everyday. Best of luck to you and all your chickens! So sorry to hear about the chick that didn't make it. Sounds like you need to place a second order!! [​IMG]
