I am a total newbie to this, but I will be using this site as my guide. I am picking up a half dozen chicks this weekend, They are of the cottage hill line.....hope I got that right. Anyway, they will be my first chicks ever. I am soooo egggcited! Wish me luck in this new endeavor. I will be out shopping tomorrow night for all the necessities. I have read about raising baby chicks in the learning center on this site, but if anyone has anything to add to help a first timer, it will be most appreciated. OMG! I can't wait!!!!!!
