    So my hubby and I made the leap and decided to get some baby chicks. We purchased 8 from one feed store then stupidl went to see what else another feed store had. We came home with a total of 11 chicks.

    We have 3 Amuricanas, 3 Gold Sexlinks, 1 white silky, 1 black silky, 3 black Sussex.

    We started with a brooder tub and after about a week realized they were too smelly and too many of them in the tub so we moved them outside to a temporary coop. For anyone wondering they have a house inside the coop, their heat lamp and a tarp around their coop at night.
    Well, these little stinkers are filthy and I'm ready to put them in a full coop. But holy cow these babies are addicting lol
