Introduction Hi! I'm ChickLover98 and I'm starting a documentary on my flock, that I have now had for almost 4 months! It will be a play-by-play documentary including updated pics and stories. Please subscribe, comment and give feedback! PM me with suggestions and comments!! Help mt flock's story become heard by spreading the word! Enjoy! Chapter 1- Beginner's Luck It all started when we lost our beloved... and only hen Jazzy. She was living with our goat and was a sweetie. She died of old age at age 7! We we're all devestated and loved chickens! A seemingly crazy idea emerged... Let's buid a coop and get a flock started. When it was set in stone and the coop was built, it was official. The HenHouse was born. We started off with getting six Amber Link chicks from our local Tractor Supply. Thay were healthy little fuzzybutts and were the cutest little things! They lived in a box with paper shreddings and a heatlamp for quite some time. Their favorite activity was practicing their flying skills as soon as they started to get wing feathers!! We never expected all six to make it through chickie hood, but I guess it was beginner's luck... Chapter 2- Movin' Out! Boy, does time fly! The names were offical: Thalia, Pheobe, Bianca, Chica, Flower and Daisy... The Chix Mix! Now, it's time to get a bigger cage and move on out to the garage!! We put them in a large cage and sat them on a table in my Pap's garage. We kept the heatlamp on most of the time, but turned it off on hotter days. Finally, the lamp was only on at night. When I came to see the chicks one morning, I counted five. Uh oh!! FIVE??? I swear, I have six! I searched the garage. How could a chick escape the cage? Finally, I gave up and went to give the five more food. Oh, my! I found the missing chick in the feeder!! She seemed lodged in there, so I gently pulled until the chick was free. Luckily, she escaped the incident with only a few scratches on her legs.
