Hi, I am very new to raising chickens. I hatched 8 chicks 4 weeks ago , and I am a very proud Momma ! I am open to any suggestions I can get on how to take care of the babies. We still have the chicks on our porch in a brooder box , but will be building a chicken house this weekend. My husband and I live in Southern Ind on the Wabash river. We have 6 kids between us and 10 Grand children. We also have a rooster named El'Rojo (he looks like he should be in a Clint Eastwood movie ) and 2 white hens. Marcie ...." Rivergirl"
