    I am a new chicken owner. I absolutely love it. My idea started with a small coop and when I was done it wound up being a coop inside a large closed in pen with a fenced in play yard. I have named my four chickens and call them by name. My husband thinks I am insane. I wasn't expecting them to be so social with me. When they hear the backdoor slam they start singing and pacing. Maybe it isn't love maybe it's just that I am this large figure who gives them treats. I prefer to think the former. [​IMG]

    You won't hear many on BYC argue with you. It's love! You love them, so they love you. Easy peasy. I'm glad you are enjoying your girls. I started with 4 too...now there are a few more in with them...and a few more in the brooder....
