    Hello everyone!

    Around Easter we bought 5 chicks and a duck. My dad always wanted to have chickens and I had a baby in January so bought then from Tractor Supply to get us started, I also used them for Easter pictures with my daughter. We built a small coop in our shed, which had a fenced in outside area. For a long time, during the day we let them walk around in the backyard. They started going to the neighbors house and eating her tomatoes so now they are permanently in the coop. Around Thanksgiving we got rid of the duck and two chickens were eaten by the neighbors cats. My dad, just last night, bought 7 more. The three we already had, had been laying eggs daily. Waiting tobsre what the new ones will do. I'm not sure of the breeds but I will post pictures later!
