The day my mom brought me the chicks, I was calling every pet store in the area looking for chick feed. I googled the known feed stores near me and all were no closer than 30 miles in each direction. I saw we could order it online but I needed the feed today. So I called my sister who used to live by where I worked and she had chickens. She told me of a feed store that sold chick food. So on my lunch break I drove down to the feed store. Got my chick starter food and hurried back to work. Still so excited to get home to my chicks (haven't even meet them yet). I hurried home and they were thriving. They loved the chicken feed and Edward built a great starter home. I had read of ways to help identified them using different band types. So I grabbed my daughters wonder loom kit and with her help color coded my chicks. The all looked amazing and we're doing great.

P.S. I found out that they are White Leghorn Chicks.

Welcome to BYC! Those are some cute chicks. Prepare for lots of eggs if you have a few pullets.
