Hi everyone. My family and I just got our first chickens yesterday. 3 days old. We are brand new at this and pretty much clueless! We've got 5 right now, and we hope they all survive! If anyone has any tips, they are welcome to share. Right now, they're in a box with news paper, shavings, food and water and heat lamp. (In our basement, since it's cold here in Chicago land.) Also found out one is a Cornish, so I am looking to pass her onto someone who would like to raise a meat bird. Myself, my husband, and two small boys are excited to see how this pans out!!!
