Hello from Texas!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone! We are new to chickens. Just got 4 orpington and 2 australorp. They are 4 days old. They came vaccinated. Other than pasty butt, and standard clean/temperature stuff what should I be monitoring for? They all seem to be happy and healthy and hopping around.

Hi welcome-byc.gif

Glad you could join the flock! Congratulations on your new chicks celebrate.gif Sounds like you are doing good job with checking temp and cleanliness. Just make sure they are eating and drinking well and you should be all good. The learning centre has a rest section on raising chicks ~ http://www.backyardchickens.com/a/hatching-eggs-and-raising-chicks
Lots of very helpful articles on keeping your chicks happy, safe and healthy.

Wishing you the very best of luck and enjoy BYC frow.gif

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
