    Hi all,

    I'm new to raising chickens. I have 6 chicks of various breeds that are 2 weeks old as of yesterday. I'm learning as I go and every time I search the web with questions I always end up on this site. I've gotten so much great info already from you guys, and looking forward to more (and more and more). Thanks!

    Kristin

    Here are my ladies at 10 days old. They are 1 RIR (named Red), 1 Buff Orp (Buffy), 1 Jersey Giant (Baby Girl), 1 Light Brahma (Bibi), 1 Barred Plymouth Rock (Rockminster Fuller), and 1 SL Wyandotte (Pretty Lady).

    Welcome! I'm in Oregon also and my chicks are about the same age. It was so nice today I took them outside in the grass for the first time. They loved it! I have 3 black australorps, 2 buff orpingtons, 1 Delaware, 2 easter eggers, and 2 Barred rock. This is my first time raising chicks and I'm surprised at how much fun it's been!

    Thanks everyone.

    Here are a few more pics:

    This is the ladies at 13 or 14 days getting their first taste of salad greens.

    This is my brooder setup. It's a 42" x 28" dog crate. That thing on top with 3 black legs sticking out is the tripod holding the GoPro. I've been taking pics since day 1. I have some time lapse videos posted on YouTube in case anyone's interested. Is it OK to post the URL here? I don't want to break any rules.
