Hi folks! My husband and I are starting our first chicks ever now that we have our own home and some land. They are coming in a few days and I am super excited. We were going to start with 5 - 6 but long story short are starting with 15 instead! We still have a lot of snow on the ground here but we are ready and nervous at the same time. Our newborns are a mix of Buff Orpingtons, Easter Eggers, Welsummers, and Marans. I cannot wait for our nice post office folks to call me saying they have arrived! I'm sure I will be using this community for tips and help, yay.
