We've been talking about it for quite a while.
It's official! We have Chicks!
We bought half a dozen Buff Orpington chicks. I didn't realize, but there's a law that you have to buy a minimum of 6 (at least from retailers). We'll find out if they are hens or roosters as they get older and grow bigger. The employees at Tractor Supply said "Well if they go 'cock-a-doodle-doo, you know it's a rooster.'"
