    I recently have gotten 12 baby chicks from the local TSC.
    Does anyone think i'm way in over my head being a newcommer to raising chickens and starting off with 12?

    Heck no, alot of us start out with the 25. It's all what you can handle. I started with three and now have over 100 laying chickens and 50 plus marans.
