After years of wondering if we should get chickens we finally took the leap. We adopted 7 Dutch Bantam sisters (Rose, Sophia, Blanche, Dorothy, Delta, Dixie & Reah) from our local vocational school. They were 7 weeks old and I fell in love... fast! Three weeks later we rescued a Rhode Island Red (Rosanne) whos age is unknown. This was August of 2017....2 weeks ago couldn't help myself while visiting the chicks at TSC. I promised my husband that while we were in there killing time I wouldn't ask for a chicken. I ended up bringing home 4 baby Silkies! I could watch these babies all day! So, all of this is relatively new to us but I feel like we're doing a good job. I mean come on, we all survived the winter! LOL I don't know why we waited so long! They have been one the most fun, exciting & rewarding things we've done in a long time.
