Hi everyone, Like the title says I am a proud new member of the chicken world. I have wanted to raise chickens for about 5 yrs now, but i dont own my own house. Until now, we are waiting for the renovations to be done and we will be moving in soon. So for me that means i can finally have some feathered babies!!! Not only was I wanting some chickens for pets but I also want the added benifit of fresh eggs. Thanks to a friend who raises bantams, and more recently Heavies, I got 3 chicks to start out until we are officially moved and i can get some more. I am more intereseted in the Heavy breeds, but she had some bantams that were just so cute! So i got 2 bantams and a Dominque, the two bantams were an unknown breed, she believed the one was a Serama which unfortunately passed away the other night. The other one is fine and so is the Dominque(Angel), so i do not know what caused the loss of the Serama, which broke my heart. But i am still determined to raise the two i have now and how ever many more i get once we get moved, into healthy chickens. I am considering some Red Stars, maybe some Brahmas, but I still want some Buff Orpingtons which were my first choice but she didnt have any. I was wanting some advice on how to socialize them well and make them good pets, I have had them for about 2 weeks now and I get them out daily and let them roam around the house(with supervision of course). I still feel has if I am not doing enough.
