    Hello I am Anne and I have four new chicks which my MIL has gifted me. I hope to find good advice here on how to take care of them as I don't have much of an experience taking care of chicks.

    Hi :welcome
    Glad you joined the flock. The learning centre is great for information. Good luck with your future chicken keeping. Be sure to ask lots of questions everyone very friendly and full of great info. My top tips for keeping chicks are - keep them clean, dry and warm, in a safe enclosure and always have fresh food and water available :frow
