    This is my first time with chickens so i will probably ask a lot of questions lol. We are building a coop currently and i now have 7 chicks in my bedroom with me [​IMG]It is very exciting. [​IMG]

    So any advice for beginners about raising them would be awesome:)

    Welcome to BYC [​IMG] What breeds of chickens did you get? You must check out the Learning Center here. There are loads of great articles on raising chicks, etc in there. Enjoy the site!
