Hello! My name is Kelly, and my husband and I are starting our mini-homestead. I have some experience, but very minimal, but I'm excited to learn! I swear I picked up the most friendly chicks ever! They are pullets(?) and we have six for now. They are currently in a brooder in our room (winter), with aspen shavings and on medicated crumbles. Any advice is welcome and I thank you for it!!
