    I am a 45 y/o single mother of 3 teenagers. My youngest wanted to hatch chicken eggs for a school project and, to make a long story short, we how have 5 chickens. i live in a suburban neighborhood. I have a medium sized coop with attached run. My chicken are about 6 weeks old and doing great! I have a Wellsummer and a Leghorn for sure, the others I'm not sure about. I visited this site a lot during the incubation process and have found a lot of useful info since then. Hoping for fresh eggs in a few months!

    hello @dalestarling ! welcome to BYC :frow
    did your youngest finish the project? it sounds like you're enjoying tending chickens. So is your youngest still interested, or is it like most kids' pets in my experience - they end up as mum's? :lol:
