I'm going to the feedstore this afternoon to buy my chicks. They have some cute ones. Some and black and white and some are red. I don't know what breed they are but maybe after I post pics of them some chicken expert here can help me figure that out? We already have a chicken coop and I have their brooder all set up......a huge rubbermaid tub. Here is the list of supplies I need to buy: 1. chicks! 2. chick food 3. red lightbulb 4. feeder 5. waterer 6. pine shavings (we have sand that I can use as grit a little later) Can you think of anything else I have to have right now? (I realize I will need more/different stuff once they move out to the coop/run) I'm getting 7 chicks. Just wanted to introduce myself and voice my excitement! I'll post pics tonight.
