    Hello From The Sunshine State
    Well as the above title says, I am quite the city girl, but I have very recently gotten 2 little baby chicks, I'm kinda freaking out because I don't want them to die or get sick or anything awful, I signed up because I did my research on google and it just seemed that this site basically had everything, it always brought me here....so here I am :)

    Welcome to BYC! This IS the best place to learn about chickens and their care ..... And everything else, too.

    Hope you've checked out the Learning Center links because there's tons and tons of valuable information there.

    Don't be afraid to ask ANY questions, as all of us have been new at one time. :)

    Greetings from Kansas, Nikkitah, and [​IMG]! Pleased you joined us. Chickens and chicks are pretty resilient when given proper care - heat (for chicks), food and water. Good luck to you and enjoy!!

    [​IMG] from California, just like what the others told you, keep them warm until they've feathered out, clean water and plenty of food. You'll do fine!
