    I got my first chickens this past spring and they are alot of fun. I love to go outside and let them out and watch them run around looking for goodies to eat. And they are addicting. I already have plans of getting more next spring! Have fun!

    OOH! I haven't let them roam the yard yet (though they did come from a freeranging home originally) but I'm thinking saturday seems like a good day to try that for a few hours. They have been so good about going up to roost at 8pm on the nose!
