Hi, I just wanted to introduce myself. I'm Janice from LI New York.
My husband and I have recently purchased chicks. We have 12 6 week old chicks and have had them since they were three days old. We got them from a local farm and they were straight run. Once all is said and done, we will keep six and my sister will take the other six. We didn't know a whole lot about chickens but we learned real quick.

I'm sure i will have lots of questions to follow.

Quote:Well we should have gotten the chicks from some place like my pet chicken because I cannot have roosters here. But, We ended up getting them on the east end of LI and decided to take our chances. I have a few people lined up to take roosters from me if I end up with some. I'm sure I will too. There are at least two that are questionable so far.

Jus' watch out for silkies pretending to be chickens. Don't let em getcha! If you see one get the garlic, a silver bullet and a wooden stake. If you don't have these run in the other direction. Do not look them in the eyes.
