I haven't had chickens since I was a kid. Bought a new house last year that we could finally have chickens. Went to the store to get 6 and came home with 12. 4 are Americana the rest are Barred Rock. Too cold outside the first night so we put them in the bath tub. Next day, I went to work. Hubby stayed home and transformed an old she'd into a run. Probably should have done the coop first but things worked out well. Have been watching Kikisgirls and her adventures of the baluts.
