Hello, I'm new to this line and have a question. Actually a couple. Is there a way to get rid of ants (possibly fireants) in a pen without harming peachicks? Next question is: I don't have chickens and never have and keep my peafowl (mostly free range) wormed. How safe would it be to put my peachicks on the ground at a month old? I only have a 4' by 6' brooder with wire bottom but have 8 chicks. Feel it's not enough room for them and they fuss wanting out constantly. A peahen has been in the 10' by 30' pen where the brooder pen with the chicks are. She refused to leave and thinks she's raising them even though there is wire between them. Only 4 are hers. Thanks much, bdfive PS What does "subscribe to this topic" mean?
