    Hi! I'm a new chicken owner on the California Central Coast. I homeschool my six year old triplets and this is a project we are doing together. We live on a 1/2 acre and have 7 6 week old chicks/pullets installed into their coop and run. (2 Easter Eggers/Americaunas, 2 Wyandottes (1gold 1silver), a Barred Rock, a Buff Orpington, and a Rhode Island Red. We can't wait for our fresh eggs!

    I bet six year old triplets are a handful !

    But a wonderful handful.

    And homeschooling at that. Now, you're wanting
    to put those new chicks in the mix...

    You're a brave lady, CurlySue.

    So welcome to the BYC, take a a look around
    and let us help you anyway we can....(except
    baby-sitting...Spooks don't babysit.)
