Hi, we have a small flock of chickens. Chickens are a new venture for us. I have experience with other animals, but we have never owned chickens or any bird before. It has been a very fun experience for our family. Our kids have really enjoyed watching our two day old chicks grow into laying hens. We got a variety of different breeds to start. Since we are new and learning as we go certain problems and question do come up. I am looking forward to hearing with how others deal with some of these problems.
