I finally have chickens!  I have wanted some since I was little.  I picked out 8 at Tractor Supply on Monday and brought them home and set up their new home.  The first picture is them on Monday.  The second picture was taken today.  I can see how much they have grown.  The bigger ones have grown in their wing feathers and I am starting to see some tail feathers.  They all seem to get along just fine.  They walk all over each other or under each other.  And toss the bedding into the water.  And sleep in the feeder.

The coop was delivered yesterday, but was damaged, so I had to call Tractor Supply.  They will have the closest TS store come pick up the damaged coop and will ship me out a new one.  So I have to wait another 5-7 days.  The guys were all ready to assemble it yesterday afternoon.  Oh well,  It will be a few more weeks before they are big enough to be put outside.

Love your chickens, of course I cannot have nay but I love free range eggs. My family had a mixed farm when I was younger and we raised chickens for eggs for market, I still remember my Mum packing the eggs into the crates for shipment. Back then the crates were really nice wooden boxes not sure what is used now.
