    Hello everyone! My name is Amanda and I have just recently started raising my own chicks. I grew up on a farm but have never done this on my own before. Currently, I have 9 chicks approx 6 weeks of age. 8 pullets and 1 cockerel. I have 3 black stars, 3 Isa Browns, and 3 White Leghorns. They are already spoiled! We love to sit next to their coop and watch them throughout the day! They meet us at the door hoping we've brought them something yummy to eat. I look forward to getting to know you and learning about your flock as well.
