    Hello everyone!

    I am new to this group and would like to introduce myself. I was raised on a very small farm where I had to take care of the chickens and their eggs. A job I very much hated! Now that I am adult, I kept bugging my husband that I wanted a few chickens. This mother's day he surprised me by building a coop. We were given 9 free baby chicks from a local grade school class project and they are currently 11 days old and growing quickly. I am enjoying every minute of taking care of them. I have been reading through several posts and all of your help has been wonderful. Thanks for being a caring and knowledgeable community!

    Hi, Brenda, and welcome to BYC. Have a plan 'B' in mind - some of those chicks will be cockerels.

    Thanks for the reminder! One of the little boys from the classroom told me that one of the chicks names was Carlos (I thought to myself) I hope it's a Carla otherwise we are having dinner!
