    So it all started with a text "do you feel up to going to TSC and getting some chicks?"

    We started way into the season and by the time I went to one they had two breed options. After waiting two days to decide and some research I went back and they were sold out! Two more days and two towns later I finally came home with 7 Isa Browns and 1 silkie.

    So far everything I have learned about raising chickens had come from the last 3 weeks. This community has been such a great help. After many more hours of reading I'm hoping to expand my flock over the next couple of years.
