This is my first post in BackYard Chickens - happy to be part of & have access to this forum!
I am the proud 1st time momma hen to 12 baby chicks that are 2 weeks old today. Am concerned that at the rate they are growing their current housing ( a 100 gal stock tank) will need replaced by this coming weekend. The gals won't be ready to put outside in their permanent coop for 4-5 weeks.
I'm considering splitting the chicks in between 2 stock tanks (6 in each). My worry: separating the chicks. Will it break bonds they have made?
What have you done to transition your chicks from baby phase to intermediate phase? Suggestions welcome. Thanks!
