    Hello! I just got my first chicks last week. They are adorable and are varied in size and type. As they were a gift, I don't know what they are, but have been reading up here on BYC on how to care for them. They are doing great! Although, I did lose one. [​IMG] the others seem to be doing well.

    I'm happy to be a NEW chickie Mommy!!!

    You came to the right place to get info. Sadly it is not uncommon to lose one or two of the young chicks, but I am glad the others are doing well. It is fun to have a mixed flock.[​IMG]:cd
