Okay, I do know this is a little early but some hatcherys start at the end of January. So, I figured I would start this thread for those of you getting chicks to answer your questions, post tips about later when they move to a coop, and for you to post pictures.
It would help if you posted the breed of chick if possible or if it is a meat or egg chick.
I personally might have some Bantam chicks, and will have meat birds this summer to sell County Fair.

I need to order mine, but have heard they are "easy" that is a 4H term for something you can raise and show with only a few hours of work put in

I sent an email out over the weekend about a couple of breeds but haven't heard back yet. I got an incubator for Christmas so will likely be hatching the eggs. I might let the elementary school hatch them and then I would raise them, I'll see about it.
