    Hi. My family has just gotten our first chickens this last week and I have been on here by google searches a couple times so I thought I would take the plunge ad join.
    currently we have 10 chicks less than 2 weeks old:
    3 bantums
    3 pullets
    and 4 cinnamon reds

    Love the cinnamons. they are the sweetest chicks. They eat a lot more than the others. Well, hello and off to go read more.
