    Hi Everyone,
    I'm in Georgetown Mass and I just bought 6 baby Welsummer chicks. If you're not familiar with the breed, the chicks kind of look like baby chipmunks because they have a dark stripe on their backs! I really don't know what I'm doing, but I'm hoping to figure it out as I go. It's snowing outside here right now (March 28) ! Any other North Shore people out there?

    Hello, and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]I'm glad you joined us.

    Congratulations on your new chicks! The Welsummer is a nice breed that should lay you plenty of dark brown eggs.
