    Just got my 6 chicks this past weekend!

    1 Barred Rock/ Tara
    1 Ameraucana/ Sophie Anne
    1 Buff Orpington/ Pam
    2 Golden Sex Links/ Sookie and Arlene
    1 Brown Leghorn/ Jessica

    Any advice or tips for a 1st timer would be appreciated.

    I am a chef and have always wanted a mini urban farm. Recently relocating from CA and buying a home here in Spokane WA is letting me be able to do that. I was originally planning for 3-4 chicks, but got a little excited and now... We have 6! I know the neighbors wont mind some eggs.

    The chicks are on an organic starter grit at the moment and a pine shaving bed in a 40 gallon tub (with a inferred light) is there home for now.

    Best!
