    Hello y'all!
    I am a first time chicken mom, or mom to be. I built an incubator and am trying to hatch 3 minorca chicks. I picked them up today from a friend and they are snuggled in their box at 99 degrees. I figure I have at least 21 days to get my coop ready. Me and my 3 kids are so excited about raising them, we have been scouring the web looking for info when we found this site. A bunch of great info here...so I decided to join. I know I will have lots of questions/advice to ask. Thank you in advance for any help.

    Hello and :welcome

    Best of luck for your hatch!
    You can keep your chicks outside from when they're about four weeks old if your temps are warm.

    Don't hesitate to ask any quesitons you might have, and enjoy the site. :frow
