I have been wanting to keep chickens forEVER! But hadn't, as I don't have a suitable chicken coop. However... My partner in crime, Becky, said she would get chicks too and we would help each other build coops. We are women who know what we want...and make it happen :)
So off we trooped to the local farm store and proudly purchased "rainbow layers", chick starter food, waterers and feeders, and heat lamps.
Becky got six chicks...and two ducks. I got 12 chicks, 4-5 which will live at my small urban yard, and the rest of which will live at Prairieland Herbs.
