A Chick Is Born!

We have fully committed to take the plunge into becoming backyard chicken farmers.  I, Chickinboots, will be head chicken farmer.  Yikes!  What did I get myself into?  I am already a full-time wife, a mother of two young, energetic girls and an owner of a labrador.  Now I am going to take on chickens, too!?  I am feeling a bit anxious as I dive into the unknown. Are chickens as low maintenance as everyone says?How do I choose the right chicken breed for our family?How do we pick the right brooder box and coop? How will our sweet, old lab coexist with a bunch of hens?  Do I really have to keep the chicks inside for two months?  How much poop are we actually talking about?  I have heard that they poop A LOT!What is going to happen to the garden?  Last, but certainly not least, how am I going to tell the neighbors?The Rooster (aka my husband) and I have completed our first step of reading a "How- To" book on becoming backyard chicken farmers.  I highly recommend A Chicken in Eve…
