    Hello! I'm a first time chicken owner.. we got our first chick last week. We ordered 15 from Cackle hatchery. We got 3 each of Buckeyes, Dominiques, Gold Laced Wyandottes, Light Brahmas, and Easter Eggers. The hatchery was even kind enough to send us an extra Wyandotte and EE.

    I love sitting with them. I'm figuring out their different voices and what their sounds are meaning. It has been so much fun. I spent a few months looking through the posts here and have learned a lot that makes me feel capable of doing this. So thank you all!

    Nice to meet you Jessica. Would love to see photos of your baby flock. You can always find you way back here or to any thread you post on. Just chick the "my profile" brown box near the top of page on right. It will show where you have been posting - if you click on - it will take you back to that thread.
