New Backyard Chicken Family in California

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hi All!!

 

I can't tell you how excited my little family is to have 6 chicks.  My husband has been doing so much research and really wanted to get our 18 month old some chicks.  So today my husband and son surprised me with 6 chicks and everything to raise them in there brooder.  We have 3 Americana and 3 blue cochins.  We have never raised chicken but my grandmother on the other hand has raised them her whole life.  We are in the process of building there large coop.  I know we have a lot to learn but boy are we excited! My son is so eager and gently with these little ones!  BYC has been such a great resource for me!! Thank you for all the information to come in advance!!

Alright :welcome great to have you joining the BYC flock :frow

 

 

 

BYC has a very useful Learning Center :caf

 

 

 

 

That makes me so happy to see a family teaching their young how to care for animals as it seems to be a dying art with most people living in the cities now a days so enjoy your new flock and I know your Americana's also known as Easter eggers or for short (EE), (EE's) will be the hit of the yard with you children as I have many in the yard and in the kitchen with the green and blue or even pink eggs I could go on but you will learn all of this in time so be happy :)

 

 

 

This is one of the grandsons last Easter with his new chicks I gave him :jumpy

 

 

 

 

 

And the happy box of chirpers Easter eggers, Russian Orloff, and Molten Houdan :bun

 

 

 

 

 

Our new Turkey just joined the brooder club :yiipchick

 

 

 

 

 

Their first morning in the brooder all so happy :hugs

 

 

 

 

 

Even the ducks have to start off somewhere :pop

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hope to see you around the BYC Trends, oh if you have any questions just ask as someone will ether tell you where to go for better help or help you right then as it is a great place on BYC :lol:

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

Welcome to Backyard chickens.  It's great when kids get involved with the chickens.  Has your son picked a favorite yet?
