Although we were newcomers to the hobby of raising backyard chickens, we had done a lot of reading and new a little bit about what to expect. We had their brooder box nice and toasty when they got to their new home. Above, you see their first picture.
If you had told me a year ago that I'd be tending to chickens, and going the extra mile to make sure they get a healthy diet, I'm not sure I would've believed you. Funny how actually getting them will make your love for chickens take a 360 degree turn. Well, maybe I shouldn't say it exactly that way. I suppose it was never that I didn't like chickens, it was just that I had never put a lot of thought into them. Now...I can't imagine not having them!
