    My family and I were visiting with friends a week ago, and I mentioned how I've always wanted chickens. Well, my friend sent me home with this one. She's a 4 week-old - well 5 now, I guess- Black Copper Marans that we've since named Lucille (and one of our new chicks is Lucille 2, if you can catch that reference). My kids love her (despite their lackluster appearance below) and always beg to hold her. She loves to sit on my arm and get petted, and now she's a surrogate mom to 6 week-old chicks (3 buff orpingtons and 3 black giants, thanks to TSC's 6 bird minumum [​IMG])
