So this is my first post and in only 3 short days I will be picking up my baby chicks! I am so excited and have my brooder prepared and ready to go. My dilemma is deciding how many to bring home- I only wanted about 4-5 chickens but many that I have talked to are telling me to double the amount or get more than I need because I will lose some. I'm curious to know if it is typical to lose several chicks. I'm getting mine from Murdochs a local feed store. Any suggestions?
