Oh goodie! I am joining the first-timers club this year! We are getting our babies next week (Feb 29th) and I will post pics then. We live in Western Maryland and I have three young kiddos (2, 6, and 8) who are also super excited. We are planning on getting 6 chicks (3 EEs, 1 RIR, 1 Australorp, and 1 Golden Comet). I will be raising them for the first month or so in a large aquarium tank, then I plan on moving them to a sealed off playpen. I am so excited to be starting this and I look forward to learning with y'all!
