    Hello, I am new to raising chickens. I currently have 22 chicks. 18 ordered from Cackle Hatchery and 4 I couldn't resist (baby chicks are too cute and I just couldn't wait for my delivery! Chicken math is hard and a real thing! Lol) at tractor supply. I am surprised by how friendly and funny they are. Currently, they are in our living room and I'm not looking forward to moving them out. Unfortunately, my husband is opposed to a house full of chickens! What a weirdo - chickens for sure belong in the house! Lol I love this site. Thank you all so much for the info you share!

  5. Welcome to the wonderful world of chicken keeping. Give it a week and you'll be moving the little dust makers out of your house. Good luck with your flock. I hope you have a coop ready soon.
     
  6. Hi! Welcome! All of my baby chicks are pullets and living outside in coops! :hit But also it's a big relief. It's nice to watch them becoming increasingly competent. :)
