We just got chickens this Spring. We had 4 and lost one to a crazy hawk that swooped down and got our girl. Then my husband built an enclosed coop cage and we ended up getting 3 more. I love my girls! I have one named "Road Runner" that is near to impossible to catch and one big worm pig. She is always running around with the worm trying to scarfe it down by herself. Then my little ones don't interact too much with the big girls and kind of stay in their little cliques. I think they are great.
