    Hi, my name is Samantha and I have a confession. A year ago I was a chicken hater. The only chicken I liked was one on my plate. Then I moved to a new place where chickens rule the roost (literally sometimes). Now I'm a convert. Two weeks ago, I bought my first pair of chicks, Sumatras, that I can call my very own. Sadly, the hen died within the first day, but I still ended up with a free extra, so now I have two roos until I can get them a little lady to join them. Their names are officially Gomez and Fester, but I lovingly refer to them as my little chicken Chihuahuas. They're small, but they have no problem letting the other chicks know who's boss.

    I've been a secret surfer of Backyard Chickens since I moved here. This place has been a lifesaver (literally) more than once. I figured now that I have my own babies, it's time to stop hiding the truth and admit it to the world: I love chickens, in all their forms.
