    I started my chicken endeavor today with 22 chicks. I received 12 female and 1 male Silver-laced Wyandotte and 8 female and 1 male Ameraucana day old chicks in the mail today.

    I have 2 solid yellow and 2 solid brown chicks. All the others seem to me marked similar except the Ameraucana chicks have a brown tint. Please feel free to add suggestions, comments or corrections to help in my chicken education.

    They all seem healthy and active except for 1 chick. I am hoping it will come around and make it.

    Welcome to the fun of being a chicken owner, or should I say madness, LOL!
    Hi from Pennsylvania! [​IMG]

    When you say one chick doesn't seem that active, is it eating and drinking? Describe what is going on and maybe someone can give you suggestions. Make sure it stays hydrated.
