    We are so excited, my brother in law built us a very cheap but very cool coop. I pre ordered 15 hens and 1 rooster from a place called "the little red barn hatchery" in maple ridge British Columbia. They are all gonna be silver laced wyandotte's. :):):). If anyone has any tips would sure love to hear them. Thanks.

    Hi :welcome
    Glad you could join the flock! Congratulations on getting new chicks. This section of the learning centre has some great articles on raising chicks. Here is the link https://www.backyardchickens.com/a/hatching-eggs-and-raising-chicks

    My tips would be as follows- Keep them warm under heat, dry, draft free, plenty of room, clean and have food and water available at all times for them.

    Enjoy your new babies and be sure to ask any more questions you may have. Everyone here to help you.
    Enjoy BYC :frow

    Congratulations! There are many, many resources on BYC and a great knowledge base of members.

    My best advice: Spend as much time with them as you can. :)

    You're welcome.

    P.S.- My silver laced wyandotte, Katy Pecky, is my current avatar. She's very talkative and I hope yours will be too.
