    My husband, of 37 years, and I live on 4 acres in California's Cowboy Capitol. We have two adult children, both have their Masters in Education and teach at local schools. As a young girl, my Dad raised Game Chickens. So, chickens aren't totally foreign to me, but it has been many years since having any. I talked my husband into getting a few chicks and here we are...I wanted them for no reason other than they amuse me. They are funny creatures! We will love having the eggs too...I currently have 30 chicks of various breeds. They were hatched approximately Feb. 25, 2011. My nest is no longer empty!! I have Buff Orpingtons, Partridge Rocks, New Hampshire Reds, Delawares, Silver Penciled Rocks, Golden Sexlinks and a Black Cochin Rooster (he was FREE, what a DEAL!). I learned about this wonderful website while standing over the chick tub at our local Tractor Supply admiring the new babies. I asked one of the other ladies how long I needed to feed my chicks the "Chick Starter" and she mentioned this website and told me it was very informative. We also have 4 dogs and 4 cats. As a school bus driver, I occasionally run across (not literally) a stray worth taking home.
