    First post from first time chick owner that has learned everything from this great site.

    My ten 3 weekers are growing and getting bigger this very minute. I swear they grow half an inch while I'm at work and sleeping.

    Purchased from my local feed store the day after arrival from New Mexico. They ordered 100 pullets with only 1 DOA.

    I got 3 Buff Orpingtons, 3 Barred Rocks, 2 Americanas (EE), 2 RIR's

    I started them in a large bunny cage with one heat lamp and peat moss as bedding for 4 days then purchased a 169 gal galvanized stock tank that I covered with hardware cloth and added another heat lamp for fear one would go out. Started with them in the living room but man did they make a black dusty mess with the peat moss that was recommended by the feed store.

    I have since moved them out to an enclosed sun porch and added shavings over the top of the moss.

    As soon as I learn to post pics - will do. I thank you all for the great posts and awesome pics.
