Hi all, We got our 1st baby chicks last Monday, we are also new to having chickens. They are approx 2 weeks old and are growing fast. We got 4 Barred Rock and they are very friendly and curious. We have handled them daily since we got them and now when we take them out of their brooder they step up onto our hand. We are loving being chick owners and I know we will have many questions over the days/weeks/months of caring for our little flock.
