    :barnieI got my "babies " on Feb, 27 Th., Who knew chickens were this awesome ! I must admit that I'm having a hard time letting go. My husband has been campaigning to move them to the chicken mansion he built. Grrrrrrr, ! They enjoy being out during the day but I've been bringing them back in to sleep in their kennel at night. The fox are all over the place. He assures me nothing , absolutely nothing can get to them but I'm still not sure. He's thought of everything though. I'm sure it's just me. They're in the house today cause it's raining ( their coop has a roof, lol ). I'm thinking around Tuesday they'll spend their first night in the coop. However, it's stressing me out. I currently have 2 Domingues and 1 Ameraucana. :barnie

    Thanks, it's good to be here. I've learned a lot by reading everyone's posts. I figure since my chicks are about to make the move and I'm freaking out, it would be a good time to join! :frow
