    Hey everyone. My name is Windy. I live near Chattanooga, TN. I literally am just fixing to get my first ever chickens. I ordered some that will come in in late November. They are supposed to be hatchings and will stay in house under heat lamp until old enough to go I to my coop. I ordered severalthat have fuzzy legs and feet but a few good egg layers along with a couple of Peking ducks. I'm so excited I can't wait. Anyone ha e any good advice on care, food illnesses of chickens? Thank y'all and nice to meet all.
