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.
