|Twink (Rhode Island Red) and Moo (Golden Comet)|
I was instantly captivated by this intriguing idea. Never once had the idea of keeping chickens in the city crossed my mind. I began talking to my husband about the prospect of owning chickens and researching extensively online. It seemed as though I would never win my husband over - he continuously rolled his eyes and shook his head at me - until one day in early Spring he consented. :) We began discussing breeds and the best way to house them and the rest is history!
On Mother's Day, my family surprised me with a chicken tractor (a mobile chicken house/run) that my husband had constructed himself (with help from our girls). I was ecstatic! We went to a poultry farm in Germantown later that day to pick out our two pullets (young hens).
We named them Twink and Moo.
