Oh we are "expecting" four chicks, two buff orps, two barred rocks.
And is there a chicken thread or tribe anywhere? It seems like that might be fun since there are a lot of MDC mamas with chickens....

For whatever its worth, we use medicated feed for the first month and then switch to an all-vegetable feed. Its not organic (because we can't afford the organic stuff that's sold here in town) but its not packed with chemicals either.

And really, does anyone want to start a chicken tribe?
