    Hi there, I'm from Utah, after a year of begging the wife, and a year of reading books and stuff on the internet, I've got 3 little chickies and I'm pretty happy and excited.

    I've got 2 Speckled Sussex, and 1 Welsummer.

    Thanks for all the good advice I've found here, this is a good community.

    They were born on Oct 1st, so a week and a half. This is my first real experience, so I'm learning as I go. What's best for a brooder? I'm using paper towels, but I keep hearing that deep wood shavings is better.
