    Hi everyone!
    I'm a new member to this amazing community, and I'd thought I might share some things about my chickens.
    Facts:
    1. I have two chickens... So far! (Soon going to get some chicks)
    2. My chickens names are Nugget and Munch... I am planning to name my next ones Kentucky and Red. Don't worry, they won't become Kentucky or nuggets! Haha!
    3. My chickens are pullets.
    4. I got them in October last year.
    5. They are very friendly.
    6. Nugget is red and Munch is black.
    Fun Fact/Story:
    Last week, I came home and Munch (Black chicken) had somehow gotten out of her run!
    I thought I had lost her forever, with some hope that she would come back at night.
    Until...
    A neighbour, from across the road, had knocked on the door with Munch in a portable cage! I was so shocked, but so, so so happy. We have learnt from our mistakes and have now clipped their wings! So this story answers the question; Why did the chicken cross the road?! To get to the other side! Literally... Haha!

    Welcome to Backyard chickens. If you free range it's best not to clip their wings, flying away is their best escape from predators.

    Welcome to BYC, Chicken Lover! Lots of good info and friendly people here.

    Integrating new chicks/chickens into an established flock can be a challenge. Be sure to search BYC for hints on how to make it work.
