    Welcome to BYC. This site will be a huge blessing to you as you raise your chicks. Tons of helpful information and super friendly members always willing to help.
    I would recommend two books to consider. Raising Chickens for Dummies and Chicken Health for Dummies. They both were and still are my go to books for help. They helped prepare me in more ways than one when I started out with chicks. There are tons of chicken books out there but the two mentioned cover the basics. A friend turned me on to these and I am so thankful for them.
    Good Luck with your new chicks.
