    Guess I'm supposed to say "hi" or something since I'm new here. So... Hi! First time chicken mom (though the boyfriend has raised them before) and I'm looking forward to watching my little chicks grow, and eating fresh eggs.

    :welcome glad you have joined us.

    Raising chickens is quite a surprising, fun adventure, enjoy every minute & take loads of pics. They grow up so, so fast.

    Here's wishing you many eggs and a healthy flock.

    Thank you for the warm welcome. So far the chicks seem to be doing well and I'm definitely taking loads of pictures. I love that there's a website like this can connects people with chickens. I feel a lot more confident about raising happy chickens knowing I have all resources this site has to offer at my fingertips.

    Cool!
    I originally wanted Silver ones but ended up getting the Gold one.

    How old are they?
    Do you have a coop built yet?

    They are about 2 weeks old and yes we've built the coop already, though we still need to build the run.
