    Hello everyone,

    I am new to this forum and have learned a lot from all of you while preparing for my baby chicks to arrive. They are one week old today and doing well. One is already developing tail feathers. We have had a small bout with pasty butt. We survived that with your help. I am starting to feel more confident that when I walk out there every morning they won't all be dead. We have 10 Barred Hollands, straight run, which are very sweet and 6 Buff Orpington males that they threw in the box for warmth. They are much more aggressive. I'm afraid we may have to eat them.

    Thank you for being here for support. I'll try to figure out how to post pictures so you can see them as they grow.
