    Excited to start learning so much about being a chicken momma, not quite the same as momma to my babies but still a new adventure. It all started with a silly prank by neighbors and turned into fabulous chicken coop built by my kids and husband and now nine babies who are 13 weeks today.

    It looks like your family did a nice job building your coop. What breed of chicks are you starting with?

    Thanks for joining us!

    We have 2 buff Orpington, 2 Dominiques(I believe), SLW, Blue Andalusian (I'm told), Brahma, RIR and a Black Minorca. I hope they will give us lots of love and eggs in the future.

    Howdy and welcome. Looks like you lucked out on a prank. I've had chickens for years and just finished a new giant chicken tractor and still don't have a coop like that.

    You can always double check your breeds by posting photos at "what breed or gender is this."
