I started raising chicks in June of this year and now have 36 chicks of various breeds and sizes. I really love my chicks and don't know how I ever lived without them. I have buff orps, spitzhauben, delaware, wellsummer, sultans, silkies, cinnamon queens, production reds. I also have white guineas that I absolutely love. None are old enough to lay, but some will be soon. I read many, many threads and have gotten some great ideas from the BYC members. Thanks everyone.
