I'm about as beginner at raising chi
ckens as can be. My chicks were to arrive Friday 05/21/10, but they came a day early. It was just dumb luck that I had the brooder set up and ready to go. I have nine Buff Orpington pullets and one cockerel, and five gold laced Wyandotte pullets.
They are now just four days old and it's amazing how much they've changed. Their little wings are very much defined now and they are active, running around and having fun.
Here we are, June 20th (Father's Day) and the chicks are already 3- 1/2 weeks old.
