Oooh, chicks are so cute! I'm surprised you only got six, though. Most feed stores only sell a dozen at a time and the mail order hatcheries tend to require even more. Good luck with them! Email if you have any questions!
Our local Agway has a minimum order of 6 which I thought was perfect! We have had flocks of 8 and 18 before and we free-range during the daytime. I couldn't believe the places 18 chickens could get and what they could do with their busy little legs! 6 sounds just fine! (<:
