I am first time chicken owner. I have 5 chickens: 2 Buff Orpingtons & 3 Ameraucanas.I have 2 Labs...one particularly interested in her new feathered friends! Hopefully there will be no accidents. It's been 4 months & so far so good.My latest dilemma is the chicks have decided to roost on top of the coop instead of inside. So, nightly, I have to put them, one by one, into the coup!! Hopefully, they will learn to put themselves to bed. For the most part, I have been enjoying learning & caring for the chicks.
