I was o.k. with the chicks in the basement, but in the last day, they got ACTIVE! Hopping (flying mostly) the barriers, lots of pecking-order fights and OMG eating way more! (Don't get me started on the poop situation) and then there is the dust they are kicking up now with the increase flapping.
These are Barred Rocks, my other batch was mostly Autstralorps. I think they spoiled me!
