Hi there- I'm new to chicken raising; or returning to it. My Grandmothers had chickens when I was little, and a lot of my neighbors. I've recently gotten a bunch of baby chicks in a wide variety. I have 30 chicks, as I was warned to expect to lose some of them. Half of them are 5 weeks, and pretty big, the others are 3 weeks. All are doing great. I'm a little intimidated to have so many, but have already talked to a couple of friends who are more than willing to take some of them if I get overwhelmed.
