I hope I'm doing this right!! Hello to everyone!! I am new to raising chickens, however I grew up on a farm and helped my grandmother with chickens. I'm back on the farm and feel like it needs chickens again. After alot of research I decided on the Silver Laced Wyandottes. I think they are absolutely beautiful and can't wait for them to get here. I ordered them from Ideal Poultry. They will be hatching Sept. 28 and hopefully will have them within a couple of days. I have read and reread everything on raising baby chicks but if any of you have some advice for this first time "chicken momma" I'd love to hear it!!! I have my brood ready for my babies!! I'm a wife, mother of a 16 y/o son and 13 y/o daughter, 5 dogs, a cat, 15 goats and soon to be 10 baby chicks!!
