    Hi everyone! I have been reading this site for a couple of years now in preparation and I finally got my chicks! The whole family is so excited for our new adventure with chickens. We were only planning on a few but it was buy 5 get 5 free so we started with 10. I feel pretty confident going forward from all of the good advice on this site but I am sure I will end up with tons of questions. I will post pics of the chicks soon! I have two that were from the assorted bin so maybe you can help me identify what kind they are. I loved seeing the chicks sweet faces and hearing their darling peeps when I woke up this morning. They are great for calming my baby fever and maternal instincts! I have a teen and 6 year old so no more kids for me, only chicken babies. :)

    [​IMG] I think you have a post on the "what breed or gender is it " thread. If not you might want to post photos of your chicks there.
