So Cheeping Excited!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hi All! I'm new to the world of backyard chickens and I'm so glad to have found this forum. I've done a ton of research over the past couple weeks and I'm ready (I think/hope!) to pick up my chicks tomorrow. I look forward to sharing my Indianapolis, backyard chicken journey with you all!

Glad you could join the flock! How exciting for you to be getting your new chicks tomorrow big_smile.png I'm sure you will enjoy this new adventure very much. Chicks are so much and very rewarding too as you watch them grow and develop. Be sure to ask any questions that you have, everyone here to help and very friendly.

Good 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

I picked up 1 Golden Buff and 2 Silver Laced Wyandotte's yesterday. Unfortunately, one of the Wyandotte's died within an hour of being placed in the brooder. Poor little thing was half the size of the other birds, wouldn't open her eyes and could barely walk. I think she had a broken leg and was struggling with pasty butt. She died in my hands, but I'm glad she's not suffering anymore. I'm hoping to pick up another one today! Cross your fingers this one is in better health!

Sorry you lost one, especially so soon. Good luck getting another, healthier chick!
