What beautiful babies! How in the world did you get them to pose so well for you?? (does that alert people to the post when you use the @ sign in front of a username??)
I'm new to the chicken world and I hope you all don't mind me joining in the thread. I've been researching for quite a while and was so thankful when I found BYC. I've ordered 9 chicks but they won't be here till JUNE! All the breeds I wanted were sold out till then. Ugh. But we did pick up 12 at TSC on Thursday. They are a week old today!
We got 6 Isa Browns and 6 Cornish cross meat chickens. I lost an Isa right off.. she was very tiny.. like a little runt and very weak. She had no interest in food or water. I tried nursing her back to health, but I think she was just too far gone. :( It broke my heart when I found her, but in a way, I was relieved. At least she wasn't still suffering. The remaining crew are doing well, and growing by leaps and bounds.. especially the Cornish crosses.... little fatties!! xD
I'd love to post pictures, but all my pictures are on my phone. How do I get them from there to here?
We just started the coop construction today. I'm super excited. I have been reading a lot of layouts and tips/tricks for the coop. I only want to do this once. I know what I want the outside to look like, but I'm trying to figure out the perfect layout for the inside. It needs to be user friendly and functional... And I'm trying to come up with a coop name.. I'm picky, so that might be tough. lol
Anyway, sorry for rambling!
