Hi I'm New!
New to joining and posting to forums and new to chicken raising! I just got 10 chicks (I know...a little too ambitious of a newbie) but I'm already in love with them all! 3 Jersey Giants, 3 Dominiques, 2 Brahma, 2 Cornish (Dark & Red). Looking forward to all your expertise.

When your chicks are about 8 weeks old, you may like to have their gender confirmed. Just post clear photos at "what breed or gender is this." Welcome to the Backyard chickens flock - so glad you joined us :wee

How old/young are your chicks?

Make sure you don't over heat them in the brooder.
They are all between 3-4 weeks old. I read the post about every week decreasing the temperature by 5 degrees, but it has been 93 degrees here the last few days with a low of 54 at night. Once the temp gets above 75 I turn off the heat lamp and then turn it back on at night when the temp drops. I think it's going to be a hot summer.
