    I went out to buy some hay, we have goats as well, and decided to pick up 2 hens along the way. One is an Araucana, and one is a Rhode Island Red. They are pretty friendly. I will get to posting some photos soon, but for now I just wanted to say, hi!

    I would be open to any advice you would like to give, it can be 3 pages long or one sentence long, I'll read it! Thanks =)

    Hello and :welcome

    Glad to have you here! Best of luck with your new chickens!
    As for advice, chickens love all sorts of treats. Yoghurt is a popular one, and cooked egg too. They also like to have somewhere to dust bathe, soil or sand it doesn't matter, they love it! Are you going to free range?

    Don't hesitate to ask any questions you might have, and enjoy the site. :D
