    Well, me and my parents wanted chickens so we told some chicken owners we knew. So they made us a small coop and we painted it at my birthday party.Now we have two hens named Cider(a ameraucana ) and Christina Rossetti ( a Barred rock -she's named after a poet).They are pullets, and have bonded withe each other.
    I am pretty much the chicken keeper, so I go on this website a lot!
