In the Brooder
- May 18, 2012
Everything I know, I have learned from this site. I appreciate everyone who has posted information for those of us out there that want in on all the fun - but have no idea what we're doing!I have had my chickens and guineas for 2 weeks now(I am guessing they are in the 4-5 week old category as they are fully feathered and like to fly up and roost at the top of the box). While the guineas have tripled in size, the chickens have barely changed. I am feeding them chick starter and have them in a cardboard box with newspaper with a heat lamp(used at night). Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong and what kind of chicken I have? Guineas are in the coop and I will hopefully be able to introduce the chickens to the coop in the next 4-5 weeks but am concerned about the size difference. Any help would be greatly appreciated...I don't want to harm them or cause them discomfort due to my lack of knowledge.
