    Hi! I am new to the chicken community. Just started being a chicken mom in the last 3 weeks. My daughter’s science class hatched eggs and we volunteered to take 3 chicks home. Built a coop and fenced it up in our back yard! We live our new animal addition, even the new puppy loves them. We just have no idea what we are doing or if we are doing it right! Excited to learn more about the chicks and new ideas to help keep them alive and healthy.

    A Morkie. She just loves the chickens. They seem to be pretty used to her as well.
