Hello all, I have been a chicken enthusiast my entire life. Our chickens are definitely pets who like to participate in shows sometimes. They eat out of our hands and sit on our laps. Our coop is overbuilt and safe from predators. We had to move away from our home because of work a couple years ago and we were forced to give away our babies. My daughter had to give up the greatest Buff Orpington roo ever. We are now back in sunny AZ and trying to rebuild our flock. We have a special place in our hearts for Buff Orps and self blue bantams. This is the last year for my daughter in 4H where we show off our babies.
