Hello my name is Jackie. We just got our 6 baby chickens on March 29th they were a week old. We have all hens. My husband and I have 5 kids. We live in Columbus, Ohio. We have a few breeds of chickens we have a Welsummer (Fritata), 2 Golden comets ( deviled and Benedict), Black sex-link (sunny), Columbian rock cross (Nugget) and a Red cross (rotten). As you can see my children named We are super excited about our new additions, and so far so good. We're in the familiarity process, which I believe is going well so far. Thank you for the acceptance we have been using your site for most of our informational purposes.

Hi Jackie, it's nice to have you here! The kids did a great job naming the chicks (although, I have to wonder what inspired "Rotten" :lol:).

Make yourself at home here!
