Our chickens are now about 9 weeks old, and they are living in their coop outside. We decided to get three chicks, so that we would start small and see how it goes. Eventually we may get more depending on how this all goes. We also wanted to get three different types of chickens, so we got a Rhode Island Red, Silver Wyandotte, and an Ameraucana. The Ameraucana will lay bluish eggs. Of course they are not old enough to lay eggs just yet. We should be getting eggs at the end of the summer. Right now we are enjoying letting "the girls" out to free range. It is so fun to just watch them explore their new environment, and they love to take dust baths.
