Let me introduce you to Peep, Peck and Pepper, they are Barred Rock Hens; Brown Egg layers. And they are now about 5 weeks old. The kids love them, they have been hand held since 2 days old. And when we go out to check on them we call out" Girls" and they start peeping/clucking! So SWEET! My Girlfriend has chicks too and its been a fun family project! She has 13 I only have 3! I thought I better not push it being in the City Limits with chickens.......Shhhh dont tell anyone!
