    [​IMG] glad you have joined us.

    Sounds like fate to get your own flock. Hope you plan to add at least 2-3 more so they will grow to be happy hens!

    Hi Shannon and welcome to BYC - great to have you onboard. I agree with Sunflour that getting another 2-3 would be better for your little chick - guess you'll just have to go outside and smoke some more [​IMG].

    The Learning Centre is a great resource, even for experienced poultry keepers - loads of info on anything poultry. https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center

    These links may help you for the moment.

    Obviously it was meant to be. Wish you could post a photo, so we can see what you've got.
