    I just picked up my girls last night and I'm so excited! I got 3 Black Australorps and 2 Americanas, all juvenile birds. We should be getting eggs in about a month! We've gotta finish building their run tonight but they seem very happy in their coop. They haven't been handled much (they were part of a herd of 80) so getting them socialized is going to an interesting adventure. Hopefully I'll get to know their personalities well enough to give them proper names this week.
    I just had to share!

    Congrats on your new chickens! [​IMG]

    Their personalities reveal quite quickly, after the first week I already knew the leader, middle status, and lowest ranks.
