Been reading and lurking for quite a while. Just got 6 Barred Rock chicks this past Saturday. In the 3 days so far, I have noticed: 1) Gosh, they are cute! 2) Dang, they are growing fast, even in 3 days! 3) They look dead when they sleep, and they sleep more than my dogs, which I didn't believe was possible. 4) There's a lot of poop. 5) There's a lot of posts about poop. 6) I never knew I'd be interested in reading about chicken poop. LOL!! Great Web site, great forum.
