Well, we ventured out and bought 7 buff braham chicks right after Easter. Our boys have been wanting to get some so we took the plunge. So far its been great. The boys have always been fairly responsible and this is only adding to that! They take care of them like they should without any complaints. I am starting to get into it too. Turning into a family thing which I love! I am in the process of building a coop and run which I think will turn out pretty good. At least I hope! I grew up with cows and horses but never a chicken! I have been looking at the site and there is a ton of information on here that has really helped me already. I look forward to learning more! Wish us luck!!
