Hello! My name is Kristen, I live in a rural town in Northern California. I got my 3 chicks on Friday and I'm picking one more up today. They are 5 weeks old, a Plymouth Rock, Gold laced Wynadotte, and Ameraucana. I made a brooder out of a kiddie pool and chicken wire. They have pine shavings, water, chick starter, and a couple of perches that they love! I can't believe I've never done this before, I am absolutely in love with my chicks! They have such personality and they follow my 3 year old daughter everywhere. She says that they love her. Here they are before I had their brooder set up. Lucy the Wynadotte is on the left, Sneaky the Plymouth Rock is up front, and Teddy (Bear) the Ameraucana is in the back. Rolling in the pine shavings Outdoor time with my daughter. They were chasing bugs, it was so fun to watch them! Thanks for letting me share! I am looking forward to being here more often!!
