Just stopping in to introduce myself and say hi. First time giving a whirl at raising chickens. These boards and threads have been very helpful in researching everything about chickens for a first timer. Found some great tips, tricks and advice on here and I'm sure I'll be learning a lot more. I just got in my first shipment of chicks yesterday. They shipped 27 but lost 2 before they arrived. The remaining 25 are doing fantastic though. Look forward to learning a lot here. Here's the babies before they were put in the brooder.
