My chicks are four weeks. Since week two, I've been making a mash of this:
kashi grain cereal
They LOVE It. I whistle when I'm about to serve them and they come running.
Aw, so sorry, S40's. That's stinks. This is why I'm afraid of that time when the chicks will go out. I think I'm too new and naive to prevent it, but I will do the best I can. Sometimes you just think it will be ok and it stinks to turn out wrong.
The garage would have to be a winter deal. I am divorced and I have an agreement about certain aspects on the house as to reselling appeal . I have to be careful. I could not attach anything to the house, period.

Anyone who takes a gander, thanks a bunch for looking.
The folks we bought them from were...
I'm just saying hi. I have been following this site for awhile. I'm amazed at how helpful and supportive it is.
I have three chicks - getting a fourth - a bantam, hopefully. Two RIR's and on BR. I love them all already. They are odd and wonderful things.
We are doing pretty well. Pasty butt...
