    Hello, although I have always wanted chickens, I didn't think I was quite ready but divine intervention had other ideas. I have 2 chicks about a week or so old from our kindergarten class at school. I want to take the best care I can but I don't anything about chickens. I would love to relate what I am doing with them and definitely want advice. Thank you.

    Hello and :welcome
    Firs off, good luck with your chicks! We're here to help you whenenver you need it, don't be shy about asking questions! Raising baby chicks would be a good place for you to post.
    Do you have a brooder for them, feed and water, and heat? If so, you've pretty much got the essentials down and they should be okay to go.
    See you round! :frow
