    Hello!
    This is my first try at raising chickens. Someone suggested I try this website and I must say that so far I love it and have learned lots so far. I have ordered 25 chicks and can hardly wait till they get here!! Any additional pointers or advice for when they arrive would be greatly appreciated!
    Thanks!!! [​IMG]
