Hello everyone! My name is Samantha and I'm from California. I'm a newbie when it comes to raising chicks and chickens and I found that it is one of the most fulfilling things I've done in a while. My parents and I are building a coop and fixing our backyard up so we can raise the chickens our neighbor abandoned one year ago. We see these chickens as a part of our neighborhood and my mom got attached to them so much that it helped her deal with her own case of empty nest syndrome. I'm setting up everything for my parents because when I head back to school (I'm vacationing for a semester here) in a few months. So anyway, I'm raising a week old baby chick born on Valentine's Day named Pocoyo. When I found him, he/she was abandoned by his mother due to him not being able to walk due to spraddle leg. We are still trying to get it all fixed up and we hope that we can give him/her as comfortable life as our family pet. Pocoyo loves to peck on my camera and my keyboard and my sketchbook. Anything I touch really lol. Anyway, I can't wait to learn more from you guys. Hope to hear from you soon.
