    First time raising chicks! We just recently moved to a new house with 10 acres. Purchased our babies 2 weeks ago, were told they hatched on around 3/14/18. We got 2 Jerssey black giants and 4 Rhide Usland whites. I found this website trying to find info on how to raise them, thank goodness!!! This is a fun family adventure, I’m married with 3 teenage boys, two dogs and we just purchased two cute khaki Campbell ducks! Hoping to find a website similar to this on how to raise ducks! I teach elementary school PE so I will be off all summer to enjoy my new babies!
