JC Finch : Thank you for the great newsletter! My husband and I just started with day-old chicks in March 2008 and we had them in boxes in our laundry room (that was interesting!) until the weather here in Tennessee got warm enough to put them out. In late April we put the six chicks and the little bunny we had bought at the same time into an enclosure we call "BunPeep Village." Mocha the bunny "roosted" with the chicks on top of a box in the bunny hutch and also had chick feed
snacks from time to time!

Here's Mocha the bunny with some of the chickens roosting at night!

Through the summer the chickens grew and four of them turned out to be cockerels and one pullet disappeared, so we traded (plus some cash of course) three of the boys for four Silver Lace Wyandotte pullets and now we have a happy family of six plus Mocha the bunny and her friend Momo. The chickens still share some living space with the bunnies and share corn with six mallards.

Here are the chickens, from left to right: Lacy, Zinnia, Rudy, Pearl, Poppy and Dotty, with the mallards Petunia and Buford and their four ducklings.
