We got some chicks over the last few weeks and I've been lurking this wonderful site for knowledge. I haven't had chickens since I was a child...that was *cough* not so long ago. The chicks thank all of you here, since I learned a great deal already. I've corrected a whole bunch of our initial mistakes. (cal fortified bird grit-out with that, had one with pasty bottom..fixed now, wood pellets are a breeze to keep clean ect ect) Glad to be here. Kristine and 6 hot chicks.
