My son and I have been wanting chicks for a long time. We bought 2 yesterday, a Silkie and a Japanese.... very adorable.... we are needing advice from the most basic of care techniques. I have been spending a lot of time browsing this site and hoping I don't get more addicted and that I can stay happy with just TWO chicks until we get a yard, because we are in a townhome for now.... We have a light for heat, food and water, but no dishes for food and water - just makeshift stuff around the house. Things tip over and we are checking on them all day long (which is a joy!)... We are doing medicated food. I am on MSN chat and Facebook chat and would love a couple of people I could reach on a regular basis with questions and anyone who just loves to give advice and demands!!! <I know you're out there!!> Please help us raise our first chickies well.
