    Congratulations on your new chicks! [​IMG] I put little roosts made out of small branches nailed to pieces of 2 x 4's in their brooder from day one. They love climbing on them and will learn to roost pretty quickly. After the first week or so, I fill a frisbee with sand and let them dust bathe. It is hysterical. Good luck and be sure to post pictures when they arrive! [​IMG]

    Never too early to start a chicken coop if you haven't made one already [​IMG] I remember when I got my first chickens, 3 adorible Silkie bantams. 2 buffs and one white. Hopefully you won't get 2 roos like I did.

    Thanks everyone! Yes I am very excited! I wanted silkies but cant seem to find any I will get some eventually though I hope. Since these are Bantams I will probably make a new pen for them. Just to save the hassle of going trough the whole pecking order thing. [​IMG]
