Hi everybody! I've been wanting chickens for just about ever and finally decided to get some. Searched online getting tips for raising chicks and found BYC, this place has been a lifesaver! I bought 15 black australorps a week ago and sadly one of my girls has died but my others are going strong! Thinking about getting more, they're so addictive! All advice, tips, and hollers are welcome! Also more about me: I'm a proud mommy of an almost 2 year old boy and me and him currently have 1 dog, 1 pig, 3 rabbits, 2 horses, plus the new addition of 14 chicks.
