I thought it might be nice to start a thread w/ advice for all the new peeps that come onto this wondeful site! If you have any Tips for raising chicks, or building coops, brooders etc - please post here. My Advice: If you live in the City, then please consider ordering Pullets from a Hatchery so you won't fall inlove with the adorable chicks and then find you can't keep them because they're roosters. It must break people's hearts to give away their roosters!! ( Favorite ones anyway. ) Go ahead and get a incubator because you will end up getting one anyways. When you are building your coop, go ahead and expand it - trust me .. it will get filled up! You will be glad you did! Go ahead and order those beautiful hatching eggs you just saw...go ahead..they're too lovely to pass up so go ahead and fill up your incubator!! When you get your chicks, start planning and building your coop because Chicks grow Way too fast. I'm sure I'll think of more things later...but for now I'll let other peeps give you advice!
