In this episode of Mother Earth News and Friends, Dalia Monterroso shares how to prepare for the arrival of your chicks, where and how to find and purchase them, and the factors you can check to make sure you’re purchasing healthy, quality chicks for your first flock.

Dalia Monterroso, also known as The President of Chickenlandia, is a Backyard Chicken Educator in the Pacific Northwest. When she’s not teaching classes or doing seminars, you can find her on the popular YouTube Channel Welcome to Chickenlandia, as well as across social media. In 2017, Dalia gave a TEDX Talk at Western Washington University, where she urged her audience to accept one another through humankind’s most amazing common denominator: the chicken. Dalia believes that being among her flock has brought a peace and significance into her life and she wishes to share that with everyone she meets. Look for her new Backyard Chickens 101 online course, set to be launched during baby chick season in 2021.
