Here's a little movie I put together. It's got some clips of the chicks playin' around with their mommas. (If you hear sniffing, sorry, I have a cold!!....That seems weird to say in June-- almost July...)

I love chickens and have plenty of them. It all started in 2006, when I started the 4-H Chick-Chain project and received 28 chicks. We continue adding to our mess of birds each year. We received 44 little chicks in the mail in late March of 2008 and also hatched chicks for the first time, and those little babies are now grown hens. This past year we bought some different breeds from the Co-op, along with 4 ducklings. Our chicken breeds consist of Polish, Cochins, RIRs, Ameraucanas, many many Silkies, and lots of other fun breeds. We have six ducks, who go all about the backyard like a gang. Our total amount of poultry is currently around 40.
