Hi there! My husband and I are new to the boards and to chickens. We moved to a little farmette as our daughter has 4 brain tumors and we are trying to eat as naturally and healthy as possible. We currently have 4 eight month old Dominque hens which we got a month or so ago and we love them. We just got six chicks today. So far so good, although glad I was able to search here and see that they look they are dead when they are sleeping because I got freaked out!! Thanks for all the great advice and keep it coming!
