We raise them and haven't had any die after hatching and treat them as all the others...The ONLY issue we find with them is they stay so small that they quickly become the target of big feet so we keep moving them back with other younger babies(i.e. silkies, polish, etc.) until they can go outside or sold...Besides that, they've become a favorite, we let them free range, only breed we allow, and are some of the sweetest birds with great temperaments...

So I've been raising 10-50 chicks a year for five years and I've only had one die and so this year I'm getting a golden seabright with a bunch of other bantams. I'm just wondering if you guys think that it'll be okay. My neighbor bought two last year from where I'm getting mine and they both died. I'm getting it from Dunlap Hatchery. Had anyone had success with Dunlap seabrights? I'm planning on it being in my laundry room for two weeks and then I'll move it out to my garage until I think it's big enough. I'm getting in vaccinated from mareks as well. Is there anything else I should be doing?
