I am so excited to find this forum! I have wanted chickens for years and it finally happened! My husband and my two boys(9 & 5) and I went and picked up supplies at the feed store two weeks ago, our chicks arrived at the store on Thursday and we just picked them up on Friday. They are Rhode Island Reds. We live in town so we can only have 3. Fate must have been on our side, we knew we had about a month that they must be inside and we must build a coop. We found one for free on Craig's List, and wouldn't you know, it was less than 3 blocks from our house! Now we are working on a yard for them. So these three chicks will get a field trip to Den 10's cubscout meeting tomorrow, (thus my login) and the 10 3rd graders will get to learn about chickens, Pretty cool for city kids! BTW, how old are sexed chicks when they are sent to a store? I forgot to ask when we got them.
