Oo! I may use this idea instead. I have lots of cardboard available. But not much room, lol. I really appreciate the help from you all! The chicks are doing well. I remembered last night that I have a food scale that weights in grams, (originally bought to check the parrot's weight). and I was able to weigh them. I was surprised to find out who was the lightest one. It's hard to tell with all that fluff!
Ponderings.... I wonder if having the chooks in the same room as the parrots boosts their immunity at all because they are only a few feet apart. Or if my parrots carry or am have immunity to cocci. Hhhmmmm...
