I just got ten pulletts last wednesday. This is my first attempt of raising chickens. I got 2 barred rocks, 2 RIR, 2 buff orpingtons, 2 Australorps and 2 golden laced wyandottes. Reading these posts has scared me that raising healthy chickens maybe very hard. I grew up around my grandmother raising chickens and I don't remember her having problems with them. I want to be a good chicken mom and am already falling in love with my girls. I talk to them daily like they could understand. Any newbie advice.
