    My husband and I have been talking about getting chickens for a few years now, we finally jumped in and did it! We are both city people, so this is so new to us! We purchased 3 beautiful Silver laced Wyandotte's at the local farm store. They are in the basement, in a large aluminum tub with a brooder light, food and water. They seem to have relaxed a bit and eat and sleep together. I check on them quite a bit. They are so cute! We have so much to learn and I really want to make sure they live long healthy lives.
