    My name is Amber. My family and I have decided to get some day old chicks from our local feed store this year. Definitely getting Barred Rocks and Wyandottes and possibly considering a silkie. We are only allowed to have 5 due to being within city limits. Looking forward to as much advice as possible before April 6! "Chick Day!"
