    Hi! I am MyChickenCookie. I named my profile after one of my chickens, Cookie, who is an ameraucana hen. I have three other chickens, Flo and Peggy who are Cornish whites, and Candy, another ameraucana. I am very new to having backyard chickens and would appreciate any tips beginners must know. Thanks!
