    This is my first time raising chicks. I think i got it right, Coop, Brooder, Water, Food and a lot of watching. Boston and Bella (My dogs) seem to be so intrigued by them. Always looking and crying to see them. Looking for tips, suggestions!!!

    That's cute, especially with your dog. You seem to have a handle on things, but... Call me crazy... where is the waterer?

    congrats and [​IMG]
    I got the book "chick days" when I was first starting out and it was SO useful! I still refer back to it all the time. I like to recommend to first time chicken owners because it put my own mind at ease a lot, and its quick and easy to read.
    Are those golden sexlinks and leghorns?

    My golden sexlink is so very friendly and my leghorn is the most curious and funniest to watch. Congrats!
