I've never had a pet and although I have lots of children, I don't know anything about keeping animals. So this is my first attempt to raise chickens along with the established kids. We have 2 Barred Rocks, 1 Rhode Island Red, and one that I'm not sure about. Maybe an Ancona. I'll have to wait until it gets bigger to see because the staff at the feed store was not very knowledgeable. Or maybe someone here can ID it. I live in Arizona where it is still plenty warm, so I think I'm in good shape keeping the little girls warm. I can't get the pics to upload, so I'm putting my blog link here. If it's not okay to link, moderators, please delete it. I can't wait to get smart about chickens through BYC. Thank you all!
