So my daughter wanted to raise pullets for her FFA project this year, and after several meeting and $25 we were the proud owners of 25 cute fuzzy chickies yeah.....they were cute. One died the first night and I though yeah...chickens this is easy NOT! 2 days later we lost our second one to the family dog and number 3 well she survived after me nursing her for 2 weeks. (she's now my favorite...don't tell the rest) We watched them grow and I counted the days till the county fair when we'd be done with all this "Chicken Stuff". Needless to say we fell in love. We go out and watch them and eagerly watch for eggs....(there still not all laying which bugs me, but is probably normal?) We have 19 left (3 were sold at the auction....she did great, never knew chicken showing was so crazy). I've come to this site on several occasions to gather information and figured it was about time to jump in the coop and become a member. Looking forward to many more years with y'all and hopefully one day I can be more helper then helped ^^.
