Hello BYC,

My husband and I and our 2 boys have started our first flock. We live in SC and have a wonderful dog Lee who is actually our first child, :). We got our 5 little bantam chicks at TSC chick days. Although we have wanted this for a long time, these guys were actually my husbands impulse buy instead of the mower belt he went in for, lol. Our 5 Bantams are now 4 & 1/2 weeks old.

Joined BYC to meet like minded people and get some great advice for caring for my little ones, since we have not done this before.
I am also interested in self sufficiency and homesteading. I would also love to learn how to start canning and food preserving.


Thanks in advance for all your going to help us with!

If they get the chance to dustbathe - they aren't having seizures, they are enjoying themselves to the hilt. Chicks often fall asleep in the oddest poses. Keep calm and trust in Backyard chickens.
