Hey there everyone! My boyfriend and I are brand spankin new to owning chicks and are super excited! We have 12 babies...5 RIR's, 6 Black Australorp's (3 straight run's-we'll see what we get!) and 1 fiesty Buff Orphington. All 5 RIR's & 3 Australorp pullets are about 3.5 weeks old. The other 3 Australorp's are about 5.5 weeks old and the Buff is 4 weeks. They are growing at a crazy rate! They will soon be introduced to their coop. I am glad to have found this site because there is sooo much good information on here! Talk with ya'll soon! Have a great day!
