My name is Katie and about mid summer me and my dad decided that we wanted chickens, and since them we have done much research, and built a 8x10 chicken coop. We are expecting our chicks in Feb, and am much looking forward to it. We have no other animals right now and its just me and my dad!! I do have 2 nieces and a nephew that visit quite often, they are 5, 3, and 1. they were over one day and we were talking about the chickens, and maybe butchering them, and eating them my 5 year oldniece said she would not eat them, so i asked the 3 year old and she said mashed potatoes and corn too... I am much looking forward to this experience!!!
