    I've loved chickens since I was little - been obsessed with having them and building a coop.

    My parents wanted nothing to do with my chicken dreams ;) haha

    Anyway, I homeschool my kids and we are learning about life cycles. Thought it would be the perfect time to start with chickens. We got a dozen eggs and incubated them. It has been so much fun! Chicks are 6 weeks old now and have been such a treat! Who knew chickens could have so much personality and be so loveable!

    Thanks for letting me be a part of your forum! Look forward to learning a lot on here!

    Thanks :)
