Hi All!! I can't tell you how excited my little family is to have 6 chicks. My husband has been doing so much research and really wanted to get our 18 month old some chicks. So today my husband and son surprised me with 6 chicks and everything to raise them in there brooder. We have 3 Americana and 3 blue cochins. We have never raised chicken but my grandmother on the other hand has raised them her whole life. We are in the process of building there large coop. I know we have a lot to learn but boy are we excited! My son is so eager and gently with these little ones! BYC has been such a great resource for me!! Thank you for all the information to come in advance!!
