Hi all! I found this community a few months ago when I decided to finally do the chicken thing! I finally registered today because my babies have arrived!!!!! I have wanted backyard chickens ever since moving out of my parents house 19 years ago! After the renting game when we finally bought our first house, they were not allowed! Now we have a new house with NO rules!!!!! I have 15 babies that arrived today. I have 5 each of Sapphire Gem, Sapphire Splash and Dominique. I am absolutely, totally head over heels, obsessed! So far they are happy running around, drinking, eating, pooping, napping and working on that pecking order! I have one that is smaller than the rest of the flock, isn't as chirpy and takes more naps but so far she seems to be doing alright, She moves around fine and is eating and drinking. I will be keeping an extra close eye on her.
