Hey I'm Stephanie and I'm mom to 3 kids ages 6, 9, and 15 months and also furmommy to Spanky (male pug), Suzie (female pug), and Rocky ( male labrador). I ordered 3 chicks back in June from mypetchicken and they should be here either tomorrow, Wednesday , or Thursday. They were shipped today via express mail. It will be a white silkie, silver laced wyandotte, and a buff orpington - all females. We've never taken care of chickens before. Today I went and bought the feeder, waterer, rabbit cage, pine shavings, and organic starter feed. The guys in the store said I probably wouldn't need the heat lamp and that I could keep them outside in the cage during the day since its so hot here. What do you all think? When I bring them inside I thought about keeping them in the bathroom with the air vents closed. We're all really excited and can't wait to meet them!
