We got some chickens. They are about 11 day old BO. Just six for now bec we're learning. Already want more. Advice and suggestions welcomed. I've been reading a lot and from what I can see so far we have 5 girls and 1 boy.

Welcome.
Best advice, predator proof housing, nutritious food, clean water and big ventilation. Use common sense, don't stress and all will be well.

Ok. Sounds good. We did make our first mistake and purchased a coop online. After having the chicks for a week we realize we will want more. Were going to build a similar one but larger. We have a lot of land and are considering a chicken tractor.
