    Hi my name is Ruth, I live in California. I remember raising chickens when I was a kid in 4H. I am now a Mom of 3 teens and they are in 4h raising there animals, so I desided to raise my own chickens. My chicks are a few weeks old and trying to fly. I am hoping to put them outside soon.

    I have Partridge Rocks, Buff Orpingtons, White Orpingtons, and Black Australorps. I have 22 chicks in the brooder but am only keeping 4 of them.
