    We've got baby chicks. My husband took me to TSC today and we picked 12 pullets, all female. We have ISA Brown's and Amberlinks. We will soon be adding dominickers, as well. Everyone is eating and drinking, beautifully! They are all alert, healthy, and sweet as can be. My daughters are going to enjoy loving, learning, and caring for our babies!
