    Hi everyone. My family and I are new to raising chickens and got our first babies last week. We are completing our home for them outside and they are growing fast. Very excited and have been learning a lot from reading through all the forums.

    Congratulations on your new chicks. The Learning Center provides tons of good information, and I recommend it highly. [​IMG]

    One thing about chickens...there is always something to learn.
    Meanwhile, make yourself at home here. Read what interests
    you.

    Tell us about those "first babies". What did you get? Mail order?
    Farm store? What breed? How's that coop coming?

    It's ALWAYS interesting.

    About the chicks. The 1st set I was helping my niece and sister with...not sure what breed 2 of them are.one is an Easter egger and 2 are RIR. They are going to another home (my niece and sister). Ours that we will keep are going to be sent to me on the 25th.....so excited to finally see them. I ordered black frizzle bantams, easter eggers and light brahmas. Can't wait and learning all we can helping my niece with hers in the brooder box. We built the coop and are working on completing the run at my place as my niece is set up now. Just waiting on the final supplies which we should have tomorrow. Thanks for the welcome!
