We're new to keeping chickens. My name is Dawne and my husbands name is Barry. We live in Redford twp, MI (a suburb of Detroit)
We bought our bantam chicks at TSC on 3/19. (Straight run, box scooped by employee) They were 1-3 days old. The brooder was an old bathtub in our cold room in the basement. Barry built and extraordinary coop & run.
We luckily ended up with 2 Roos (silver duck wing who started crowing at 1.5 mo old! & a calico Cochin who's only been crowing for 3 wks now) 4 pullets ( silver duckwing, 2 golden seabrights & 1 mixed with feathered legs/foot.)
I've used the breeds page to identify the Seabrights and the "???? Breed" forum to identify the others(so greatful for those that helped.)
Now I'm off to go give the "babies" (Cesar, Nugget, Little, Strip, Parm, Fried) a handful of mulberries
