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.
