I've owned chickens now for about 6 months. My husband and 2 year old went to Rural King one day for some dog food, and came back with a variety pack of baby chicks. We ended up with 1 Americauna, 1 Red Sex Link, and 2 ISA Browns. As aggravated as I was at first, I quickly have become a crazy chicken lady, even recently adding sone silkies to our flock. I love getting home from the office and watching my girls play, and spend too much time searching for the perfect coop design for our little homestead.
