    Hello all! I'm new to this group. I just got a flock of baby chicks. I have 2 ameraucanas, 4 silkies, 7 bantams, and 4 unknown. I have already found this website to be so helpful. I did not realize how much work chickens were until I got in to this. I have a concern that I got to many chickens.lol I'm kinda went over board.
