    Default My little swingers

    The chicks came in in early April from Cackle Hatchery. I bought the swing for 50 bucks from a couple of meth heads.

    It's amazing that all 19 of them arrived in a tiny little box on April 4th. I ordered 15 pullets and 3 roosters. They sent an extra pullet so I have 19 total. I also have 5 hens left from my order to a different hatchery last year. I love my last year'd hens but they are obviously not purebred. These are much better quality.

    They give me so much joy I feel kind of silly. They come running to me full speed, on their silly little legs because they know that I will give them a treat. I've been accused of liking them more than my fish. I don't know that it's true. They for sure cause me less worry than my fish have caused me.

    Do you have any trouble with the dogs getting after the chickens, Liz? I'd love to have chickens but both of my dogs have a high prey drive.

    Hi Martha. Here at home I am top ***** and my word is law. All my animals run free except for when I have to lock my horse up during hunting season when she eats the corn my neighbor puts out to attract deer. My only rule is that everyone get along. I had to whip my little poodle's behind 3 times, each time harder before she got the message that she was not allowed to terrorize the cat. Other than that I have had no problems. I do have to lock the chicken in their house at night because we have possums.

    If you were to have chickens you would probably have to build a secure coop and only let the chickens run free if the dogs were locked up.
