So when I found this forum and joined things were hectic here in Maryland, but I did lurk and read. This forum has been so helpful the past few months!! My chicks are teenagers now.. along with my middle child who just turned 13(God help me...). The chicks hatched April 18 so they are almost two months old. Its been fun and I've loved every minute of having them...even pasty butt(which wasn't bad after the info I got from here... ) Well anyway, Hi from Maryland and thanks for all the help you didn't know you were giving!
