    About a week ago my family and I began our journey into raising chickens. A bit clueless I did research and so far feel my 2 week old chicks will be very healthy and successful layers! I have 4 total now, waiting on some other breeds to hatch within the next few weeks. 2 easter eggers (which I think ones a rooster), gold wyandotte, and a barred plymouth rock.
    Anyway, we lI've up in good ol Alaska and are excited to learn about raising a flock!
