Hi my name is Vivian and this is my first year raising chickens. I actually got them last April at our local feed store and they are now laying eggs daily. All 5 of them. I had 6 but one died. They are the funniest things to watch. Whenever I go outside they come running towards me, that's because I always have treats in my hands, and even when I don't have treats they still come running towards me. And they even follow me thinking I'll give them treats.
