Hi, I got my first three chickens in April of 2017. I never thought I would love them as much as I do. My favorite heels better than any dog I have ever owned. She follows me everywhere. Unfortunately I lost one hen to predators because I thought I had locked the coop at night but found out that wasn't the case. I double check now because I don't want to lose any more. Thanks for such an informative and fun site on chickens.
