Sooo, I ordered 7 chicks thinking I'd end up with at least 5. They are 6 weeks old now and I lost my first 2 a/r 4 weeks from some kind of bacterial infection (what vet thought). Nursed the others back to health, especially one that was on death's doorstep only to get it well and then it gets mauled by my dog. So now I'm down to 4. My coop/run could hold 10 comfortably. I'm entertaining ordering more chicks, but wonder if I should just hold off and wait until spring, now that I have 4 happy/healthy ones. I guess I'm wondering if I would be pushing my luck. As it seems to not be the best these days. Any advice would be appreciated. Even though my first experience with raising chicks has been hard, it's been worth it.
