I'm a New Mom!!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hello everyone!!  My name is Ansley and I am a stay at home mother with a 3 year old little girl, 3 dogs, and now 3 baby chicks!  We are super excited about our new adventure with being chicken parents.  I have never raised chickens before so we are learning as we go.  We researched what was needed to have chicks and now doing our research on coops, free range or cage, winter heat, etc.  I may ask a lot of questions because just like with my dogs, I would not want to do anything to put my chicks in danger.  I hope to get to know you all and any advise is appreciated!!!

 

Happy Clucking!!

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

I'm not sure what breed the chicks are. Here is a pic

I can't tell but if you post close up, full body photos of each one on this forum, they could probably give you an idea:

It might be easier to identify them in a couple more weeks though.
