    Hi everyone! A couple of weeks ago we got our first chicks, born Nov 27th. They are so cute! I have no idea what types they are, though; I'll figure that out when they get their adult feathers (I hope). One of them pecked my 5 year old in the eye today. Lesson learned - keep them away from your face! Looking forward to learning about and enjoying our chickens!

    Greetings from Kansas, GenomicsGirl, and [​IMG]! Great to have you here! Yeah, I have had that happen as well when one pecked my eye - just curious little critters. Best of luck to you! When your birds get older take some pics and post them here for help for breed identification.
