    Hi everybody. I'm now Grandma to 16 chickens. Thinking 15 hens and 1 small Banty Roo. Our son, DIL, and 3 grands started chicks at their house and with our full permission and participation have moved them to our place. We have 5 acres so are happy to have them. We've had a great time building the coop and run and I'm having a great time tending to them.

    I joined to learn way more than the thimble full of knowledge I have so far. Looking forward to the journey.

    Oh, what FUN! Welcome! So... how old are the grands, and how old are the chickens? Do you know what kinds of chickens you have? And do you have any other critters/pets on your 5 acres? Dogs, cats......... ponies? Lol
