  1. We fell into chicken keeping very recently. My son's kindergarten teacher incubated 7 eggs this past spring and only 1 hatched. My son and I were very into watching the whole incubation and hatching process and volunteered to bring the chick home with us for its first weekend,.. and second,.. and third... and then bring it home with us after school was out! Lucky Lucy, named because she was the only chick to survive, became our beloved first chick. We soon learned that she longed to socialize with her own kind as well as us and we hopped down to a feed store to find a companion chick. Pepper, our second chick, instantly bonded with Lucy and the two were inseparable. In the mean time I took a course to learn about backyard chicken keeping and brought home four more chicks! We ended up having to re-home Pepper because he started crowing at 7 weeks old. So now we have 5 chicks: Lucy, Marigold, Olive, Violet, and Jade. They are 12 weeks (Lucy) and 6 weeks (the rest) old, and lots of fun!

  2. We have been raising chickens for 6 years. It's true what they say about chickens being the gateway farm animal. First it was chickens, then ducks and turkeys, started raising dairy goats and now we just purchased a farm. Next year we will be adding pigs and hopefully cows. I couldn't be happier!

  3. We got our first chicken baby girls in April, what a wonderful blessing they have been! Our son is a very reluctant reader and now loves those girls so much and wants make sure they are happy and well cared for so he reads every chicken book we can get our hands on and is constantly giving me information and ideas to make our girls happier and healthier.

  4. This is only my second year of raising chickens but I have now found a new joy to keep me busy and content! We live in the state of Maine and have built 2 exceptional chicken coops ...All together we have 30 chickens and 4 ducks!! I sell my eggs and I am saving money for an incubator...We plan to breed gorgeous Lavender orpingtons in the Spring of 2017 :)

  5. I have been raising chickens for about 3 years. I wanted to start raising chickens when I moved to Florida to have fresh eggs! I got my first chickens from a friend cause she wanted to thin out her flock they were adult chickens some ameraucaunas, Rhode island reds, and a white rock. I was hooked I didn't just enjoy gathering the eggs I enjoyed feeding them and just watching them! This past spring I got baby chicks dome more ameraucaunas, white rocks. Cochins, and wyandottes they have begun laying just last week and I was so excited! I enjoy my chickens and would recommend anyone who's interested to give chicken keeping a try you will not be disappointed!

  6. We raised chickens a few years ago and then took a couple years break. Last year we started back up again with only 5 chicks and now we are up to 26 layers! My son loves feeding them and taking care of them and they give us the best eggs.

  7. We adopted our 6 girls from my brother 9 months ago and I LOVE every minute! Wish we could get more, but by law where we live 6 is the maximum!! Hope to move someday and own more!!

  8. I have just completed my 1st year with chickens! They are wonderful in so many ways. They have so many benefits besides eggs - they're fun to watch & help maintain the bug population. Right now I have 5 bantams, but as soon as it cools down - hubby said he's going to build another coop & run for us to extend our flock to LF. :D

  9. We got our first flock of chick chicks in the spring 4 years ago. We are currently raising a second flock to add to the first. They are so much fun to watch. They each have different personalities. We spoil them and they feed our family delicious eggs.

  10. I started raising chickens last October, when I purchased 2 RIR pullets. They started laying the beginning of December and by February I decided to raise 6 day old chicks. I now have 7 hens and a bigger coop... And LOVE my girls!

  14. We started with 1 RIR Hen in September 2015. We now have 30! Chicken math is for real! I didn't ever think it would happen to me though! They have been such a blessing to our family & we wouldnt trade them & the experience for anything!

  16. We started our journey with chicken on Memorial Day this year. A dear friend of ours brought 7 gangly chicks to our farm early that morning. We were hoping for one, maybe two roosters. Out of the 7 we have 3 roosters and 4 pullets (not what we had planned, but plans here are always changing). The flock now free ranges in the large pasture with our male alpacas, all under the watchful eyes of our Livestock Guardian Dog. It is not uncommon to spot the flock in the barn catching the breeze off the fans or perched on top of an alpaca for a higher viewpoint or a handy ride through the fields. We never would have guessed that a small flock of chickens could impact us quite this much. They bring us immense joy and amusement and we can't imagine the farm with out them.

  19. This is my first year with chickens. I've known for several years that I wanted them, and this year, I finally did it! I built my own coop from the ground up. I started with four, and now have twelve, except one is a rooster and I need to get rid of him. The four oldest I've had since February and they're all laying! My RIR literally laid her first egg about 60 seconds after the nesting boxes were done! I had hit my wall with the building process and had time before I needed the boxes. The day I finally decided to do it, she decided to lay! It was crazy, and I love having chickens!

  20. I have been raising chickens as an adult for 3 years, we love our ladies and they are just as much pets as our dogs are. I grew up with chickens, as my parents had always had chickens as well. They are roaming our backyard next to our dog, even pausing at the fence to cluck at passers-by as the dog barks.

  21. We have been raising chickens for 6 months now. I've wanted chickens for years and I was finally able to talk my husband into it. I have to say that our chickens are the best pets we've EVER had. Currently we have 6 chickens, 3 are silkies and I'm not exactly sure what the other 3 are. Maybe cochins? Anyway, their beautiful furry feet chickens! It is starting to become an addiction for me. I want so many more. Our 3 year old son Henry has autism and that can be very stressful so I use these chickens are stress relievers for myself. My chickens are better than any medication the doctor could give me and I'm not zombiefied! Henry gets very excited yet scared around animals. He cys and screams but wants to pet them...maybe. It's a hard thing to try and explain but the chickens are the only animal that my son WILL touch and doesn't cry about. So I'd say the chickens are therapeutic to our entire family. My kids loves to feed them and hold them and now I've even got my husband involved! Haha! He's even wanting to buy us an incubator. I can't hardly wait till we get our first egg!! In a crazy sort of way these chickens have saved us and I'm grateful for them! :)

  23. I've been raising chickens since 2005. The first 5 were left with my home I purchased. I now have 46 many of them roosters. I really enjoy caring for them and interacting with them. Never knew it would be so much fun to have chickens! I'm now a vegetarian because of them. They live out their lives here at the E-I-E-I-O Farm.

  24. Hi! I've had chickens in my life since I was a child. My dad always raised chickens. I guess I get it honest. :) We are in love with our tiny flock and enjoy them immensely! Thank you so much for these fun drawings. I never win a thing on Facebook haha, or anywhere else, but it's worth a try!

  33. I got my 4 chicks (pullets) in March 2016 at 2 days old. I started getting eggs (at least 2 a day) 2 weeks ago. I love my chickens & spend a lot of time with them. Each one has its own personality. They will never be on my dinner table. :-)

  39. The better question would be how long haven't I had chickens. Lol. If my calculations are correct, I believe it's been about 20 years and counting...of course the chicken math has taken over and my latest surprise babies brings the total to...well let's just say more than a few. ��

  44. I've been keeping chickens (bantams) for just over a year now. Started with 4 hens - but two turned out to be Roos - so back they went and I got 4 more hens (chicken math, right?). I got them when they were about 5-6 weeks in age and I'm thoroughly enjoying watching them mature into egg layers, then broodies, then egg layers. Through it all, I've enjoyed every minute. Only thing I'd change would be to do it SOONER!

  47. I am a newbie to raising chickens. We purchased our coop in April of this year and in May we got our six "girls." I've never been so relaxed in my life. I spend most of my mornings with them as well as the evening. I have two young daughters who also enjoy checking on our hens.

    This is my second year of raising chickens. My husband built me a fabulous coop for my 43rd birthday and I have fallen into the role of crazy chicken lady with ease!! We currently have six lovely ladies - 2 Delawares (1 1/2 years old) and 3 Wynadotes (6 months old). I spend time with them every spare moment I get!!
