I have four children 11(girls), 10(girl), 10(boy) and 7(boy). Now I am the mom to 10 chicks 2 frizzle cochin, 2 siklies, 1 naked-neck(love her), 4 cochin(-1 that died yesterday), 1 fayoumi and 1 brahma. The black cochin had been quiet since we got her but I noticed her not being with the others in brooder so I moved her to her own. Couldn't get her to eat or drink(tried q-tip on her beck) and we lost her. All the other chicks are great and lively. They are 2 weeks old. Naked Neck and Brahma are 4 days older. They are on chick feed. Change there water twice a day and food changed twice a day. Heat lamp is around 83 degrees.
I know I don't have great layers but kids research what breeds they wanted so I went with it. I would like to get some Barred Rock this weekend but not sure.
Coop is currently being made and I only have 7 nesting boxes.
