I am a first time poster and wanted to introduce myself. I received my three little chicks a couple of days ago from Meyer Hatchery. They're Golden-Laced Wyandottes and cute as can be! I'll be posting pictures. I look forward to reading all the posts on the many subjects. I had 4 chicks seven years ago, which I got from a co-op, and the last surviving hen, Roxanne, was killed by a chicken hawk just a few months ago. I miss her terribly, so I decided to get some more chicks. I have a 30 acre farm in Alabama and raising chickens is one of the most fun things to do. They are very entertaining! I ordered one rooster and two hens so maybe I will end up getting a few hatchlings. Right now, I am keeping them warm and happy. I paid extra to have them vaccinated, so I hope they'll grow strong and healthy!
