hello all, I must say I always wanted to own a few chickens and now I do. I went to a feed store to pass the time one day and in the back they had some young "Easter egg" chicks. My daughter wanted to get one and my wife didnt mind the idea so we ended up getting two! I brought them home Saturday. right now they are in a rabbit sized wire cage and I have some starter food and a watering bottle. other then that I am here to figure out what is next. I do have a farming background but moved away after high school and never looked back. now I live in the city. but where I live I have looked into it and they dont seem to have a problem with chicks if they are quiet.
