    Congratulations, welcome to the wonderful world of chicken keeping. It's a great world to be in!!

    I agree with gryeyes, you can't have just one. When I started, I thought I was going to get two. Well, I ended up with four... and I want more. [​IMG]

    Thanks!!

    She gave me our first egg!!! [​IMG]

    Then we let her out because it was extremely hot. Then a storm rolled in and then I talked her into letting me put her away.

    Here are some pics of when she was out:

    The storm passed and the sun came out, and I got a video of her. Here it is:



    Then the clouds came back and she got back into her coop all by herself. [​IMG]

    Aww, she looks very sweet. Is she a Jersey Giant? I got my first chickens a year ago, and I was very surprised by what great pets they actually are. Enjoy!
