Long time lurker finally joining - Page 2

That's a lotta chicks.  Think you are gonna need a bigger brooder   - like now.    They are adorable -  but really it's best to wait a few weeks in trying to  figure out breeds and gender.  At this stage a lot of breeds start out yellow  or chipmunk markings  so you need them to age a little till gender clues pop up.

I have two big wooden brooders and four smaller ones. They've got plenty of space now that I've got everyone set up. smile.png

That first day was nuts, I got double what I expected since some shipped early!

Welcome to BYC! I'm glad you joined us! :)

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
