    Hello, I just noticed this thred and wanted to post about my chicks. I started building my chicken coop mid June of 2014. I did lots of research about waterers and feeders. Then I did research on breads. Then looked around for some chickens to buy. D2B had a San Diego delivery for July 10th which wasabi perfect due to my birthday is July 12th. I ordered 2 - Buff Orphingtons 9wks, 2 Barrett Rocks 8wks, 2 Rhode Island Reds 7wks, 2 White Leghorns 7 wks. They have made great progress in getting along and had very little problems with them. I did find that a lot of people want to give you mixed information on when and what I should be feeding them. Feed store insists they should be eating layer feed and seeing everywhere else saying chick starter. My chicks have chought a cold they are sneezing got vxmed. Hoping feed store isn't leading me in wrong direction. They are now 11-13 wks.will post pics of chicks and coop.
