    My name is Ella, I'm 17 and I'm not quite new to raising chickens in the city, my parents raised some when I was 7-8 years old, but this is the first time I initiated it...sooo


    We ordered 15 batam chicks from cackle hatchery and waiting for them to arrive, getting busy setting up a brooder and building a coop, hopefully next week or the week after.


    I'm pretty up to date on the urban chicken care but your tips from experience would be welcome!


    P.S. The chicks I ordered are 5 Silver Sebrights, 5 Buff/Black Japanese, and 5 Araucana, I'm SOOOOO excited!!! [​IMG]

Ive only been a member of BYC for about six weeks, but already Ive learnt way more than I ever have in books etc, this is an awsome friendly site, with so many folks eager to offer advise and help, no questions go unanswered!
