    HI,
    I have plenty of chickens but purchased all of them as adults. I just picked up 6 EE, 2 BO, 2 Red Sexlinks, and 2 Black Sexlinks.
    I have read lots of posts on this forum and feel I know the basics of chicken rearing but I am looking for a chicken friend who could help me out with any questions I may have. My little ones are in a huge aquarium in my living room, they have heat, water, food, and bedding, as well as enough room to warm up and cool down if needed. I am pretty nervous and don't want to loose any. So if you would like to give me some tips or help me out if I have any questions or problems I would really appreciate it.
    A bit about me, I have a hobby farm with goats, pigs, rabbits, and chickens. I am a chicken fanatic lol. I have Astrolorp (1) BO (4), Norwegian Jaerhons (4) D'uccles (2), Bantee roo, BR (2), SLW (1), WR, and a few other unwanted chickens that ended up in my flock. We also have 2 dogs, 3 cats, a bearded dragon, parakeets, and cockateils. I think that's everyone lol.
    I am off to find a link about normal chick behavior, so I know if I got my set up right.
    Thanks again I will post some pictures when the chicks settle in, I don't want to stress them out.
