New Chickens = Excited!!!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I'm so glad this site exists!  I've learned so much already.  For the past three years I've visited the chicks during chick days, just waiting for the right year to become a backyard chicken owner.  I brought six Red Sexlinks home last night.  Sadly, one was lethargic this morning, and she didn't make it.  :-(  My son took the day off from work to make sure the rest would be okay.  So sad.  The rest seem to be having a ball, and hopefully they will all be okay.

 

BYC is such a wealth of information.  I hope someday I'll know enough to actually help others and make up for the zillions of questions I will be no doubt asking.

Hi, Melissa, welcome to BYC, and good luck with your chicks.

Friends are the family you make for yourself.

:welcome  glad you have joined us.

 

But sorry about the loss and hope all others do well.   I know it was hard to lose one of those babies.

 

Watch for pasty butts, they are quite common in the the first week. 

 

Do visit the Learning Center for answers to many questions.

Thank you!  

 

I am on the lookout for the pasty butt issue.  Hopefully this was an anomaly and the others will grow up healthy and happy.  :-)

Likely there was something wrong with that one.

 

Enjoy the adventure, they grow so, so fast.
