    been scouring the interwebs ;) on solid chicken advice. I got 6 month old chicks, two bantams, two barred rocks and two ameraucanas. I have almost finished securing the whole run. Don't worry I have them in a apple crate at night. so its predator proof. chicken nipples will be here on Monday and then i can make a clean waterer for them. I'm also doing the Ms. Braggs apple cider vinegar in their water. Anyways really excited to have some happy girls and learn about the amazing lives of the ancestors of the dinosaurs. I'll post pics of the run when its done.

    Welcome from your neighbor in New Mexico! My mom used to live in Tucson and I made so many trips there for a visit many years ago. [​IMG]

    Nice looking babies you have there! Good luck with all your poultry adventures and enjoy BYC!

    thanks so much. I've been in Tucson a year. I'm from Oregon. I'm caretaking/living with my 92 year old Grandma so I wanted to bring some life onto the property for her and I wanted some birds and I love eggs. :) Happy trails in New Mexico

    How nice of you to take care of your grandmother! I really enjoyed Tucson when I visited. Although the summers can be brutally hot!

    Enjoy your new babies!

    Beautiful girls - is the first one a gold lace Sebright? I don't know most breeds but you mentioned bantams so I thought - could be.
