Hey guys! We are getting our first batch of baby chicks!!! I've been reading up on what we will need and what to do to raise them, but I was curious to get advice from the experts here so what are your "must haves", favorites and tips to raising your chicks? We are planning to get 6 chicks, a mix of Americans, golden stars (same as sex links right?) and australorpes. We have 4 little boys so we are hoping the are good egg layers and good with kids
Sounds like you have a nice mix of birds. I love the sexlinks for egg laying. And, I love the leghorn. EE's are always fun..pretty blue or green eggs.
Question..are you going to have a lot of birds? 4 roosters to just a few girls..not a good idea. Poor girls, and not sure they will get along as they get older if you have them in a small space. :)
