New to chickens

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Our family is new to the world of chickens. In the last two months, we have purchased 18 chicks from Tractor Supply stores. One did not make it, so we have 17 chicks. The first twelve have been in the coop for a week and a half. They love it. The other 5 are too young. Unfortunately, they were mixed,so we don't know the breeds.

Did a moth know that the flame was going to change her life forever, or did she simply fly towards that heated embrace, knowing it would offer her something she couldn't give herself? In the end, the answer didn't really matter. The moth had never wanted the choice. -Joey W. Hill-
