Can’t sleep lol. Welcome! You will be a true chicken farmer here. I am amazed at the amount of information here. I used to be here once when it was early and I am amazed at so many chicken lovers. I have 36 or so right now. Mostly growing for food or pets here. I started out with 5. Every year I raise a fall batch and well, there are little peeps freaking everywhere! I am in Florida but it is getting chilly for my 2 week olds. They are all bundled under a heater and my clothes are still wet because the heater trips my dryer. The crazy stinkers are not coming in though! Thank you for joining because we could always use more insight! Happy chicken hunting...

Lol you know your a crazy chicken person when your chicks get the heat needed to dry your clothes.

Hi and welcome to our community. I hope that you enjoy your time here.

This is a useful link of BYC guides to take a look at announcements-feedback-issues-guides.3 I’d suggest including your location using the guide in that link, if you have not already done so. You can use this link to contact members in your area - Find your State's thread.
