    My wife and I recently purchased a house that came with 3 chickens - an Australorp, a Rhode Island Red, and an unknown breed (at least to me). I also just purchased two ISA Brown chicks. So far we are in love! Our daughters are obsessed and my oldest has taken an active role in their care. I look forward to learning as much as I can from you guys!
