    Hello everyone, I'm Joey. I live on 22 acres and have 3 dogs, 2 hamsters, 10 fish, and a potbelly pig! My school has incubated chicks before and each time a few familys are able to take a few home. This time I will be able to take 2 home. There are two black chicks and about 8-9 gold chickens. I believe they are Rhode Island Reds. This will be my first time raising chicks. I have already explored this website and figured out what I need. I am very excited! Any tips? Thanks!

    Hi Joey! I am also new to raising chicks! This site has been an excellent resource for me! Check out all the forums, theres everything from coop building, breed information to Heath concerns and incubation. Likely, if you have a question about something, someone has already answered it somewhere on here :) the "search" tool has been my best friend ;) BYC is awesome! Good luck and enjoy your new chicks!
