    We just got our baby chicks yesterday. They are 10 days old and our Barred Plymouth Rock I am told [​IMG] This is our first time having chicks and we are excited hehe. We are a homeschooling family of three special needs boys and they are just so happy as well [​IMG] I am so glad I found this site. Everyone seems so supportive and welcoming.

    They are really cute. We got our first ever chicks about six weeks ago, they were a week old. I found it a bit nerve wracking at first but really pleased we did it. They are so much fun, I'm sure you and the family will get great pleasure from them. Hope to chat to you soon.

    Awww, cute chicks! We are a homeschooling family also (what a great project chickens are..). I'm jealous that you are able to have so many chicks. We have five now and that will be stretching the limits of our coop until we can get the run finished. Hope you have a great time with your chicks!

    Welcome to BYC and congratulations on the new avian members of your family. [​IMG] Your sons should have a great time watching the chicks grow up, and nothing will beat the excitement of that first egg! [​IMG]
    Thanks for the pics, and keep us posted on how your new flock is coming along. [​IMG]

    The birdy that has more black I think is the lead bird. It boasts around and the other two follow. It has been opening its mouth a lot like it wants to say something, does that mean it could end up being a roo?
