Well, I did it. I ordered my first ever chicks from My Pet Chicken. 2 Barred Rocks, 2 Partridge Rocks, 2 Silver Laced Wyandottes and 2 Gold Laced Wyandottes. They'll be here in late May, that should give us plenty of time to get a coop built or a shed modified. I'm not sure which way we are going to go just yet. The structure will be at least an 8 x 10, so I'm thinking there will be more than enough room for 8. I have a space cleared out in my computer room for the brooder, have a heat lamp and the bulb on the way, we recently moved so we have MANY boxes (sooooooooo many boxes) to build a brooder with. The only things left is the feed, the pine shavings, and the little chicks themselves. I've been looking at vitamins and stuff like that. Has anyone used that Gro gel stuff before? I'm thinking about getting some, but a little 4 oz packet feeds way more chicks than what I'm going to be getting.
