    My mother and I decided to dive into raising chickens this year. I went to a nearby farm in Java, VA (kinda, it was two hours away) and picked up 7 Dominiques, 6 RIR, and 2 Deleware day old chicks. Once they are old enough some will go home to Momma. They have been a blast so far.
    The man we bought our babies from was so nice and helpful. I could tell he was very interested in the welfare of his animals.

    Here is our set up for now. They are 4 days old a growing fast. We will have to come up with something else soon.
