Hello, I am a first time Chicken mom! I have an assortment of 12 heavy breed chickens and also 4 Cochin bantams. I love all of them dearly and amazed at how fast they grow. They are 3 weeks today and growing their back feathers this week. I think I'm going to love having my girls around considering I have 3 little human boys and one grown boy around the house. They are my escape from the daily activities.
