+1 on the Barbezieux flightiness.
I'll be weighing and banding mine soon and am not looking forward to it. I think it will be best to do at night when I can take them off the roosts.
Hey everyone. Here is an update on my babies. My BBC Ameraucanas at 10 days old. They are jumpy little things. LOL
I am going to put them in the big brooder as soon as all this rain and cool weather pass. It is on my back porch which is fully covered and has a lot more space. I made it out of an old wood toybox that my neighbor was throwing away. I had my husband cut a hole in top and we put hardware cloth on it. I think they will love having more room to run around. I have had a couple of the chicks peck at my finger in a fighting way when I stuck my hand in there and that was when they were three days old. Cracks me up! He was gonna take me out! LOL
