New to site, new to chickens!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hello! My name is Kelly, and my husband and I are starting our mini-homestead. I have some experience, but very minimal, but I'm excited to learn! I swear I picked up the most friendly chicks ever! They are pullets(?) and we have six for now. They are currently in a brooder in our room (winter), with aspen shavings and on medicated crumbles. Any advice is welcome and I thank you for it!! ūüíóūüź§

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
