    Hi - I'm a newbie chicken owner. :) We tried raising chicks about 2 years ago, but our dog got them after their pen got destroyed by a tornado. So now we are trying again. This time we have 3 Tetra Tints, 2 Gold Laced Wyandottes, 2 Barred Rocks, 2 New Hampshire Reds & 1 unknown one. :) I think its a bantam chick since it's so much smaller than the other chicks. Hopefully these chicks will grow into nice chickens and not puppy chow! :) The kids are still working on names for them, so I just call them chickies for now. :)
