    Hard situation to be in. And no one gives family leave for chicks! I'd go home early if it's possible. Any neighbor close enough to check on them for you?

    No close neighbors really. My boss raises cattle and sheep so I think he would understand but I still feel kind of bad asking after I already came in 2.5 hours late in order to pick them up and get them set. Maybe I can work from home or something, we'll see.

    I am picking my chicks up on Saturday we are getting 18 Austrolorps and 4 Polish. Can they go in the same brooder. I have heard that the Polish chicks are very small and you have to be careful of them drowning in the water. This is my first time with chicks. Rose [​IMG]

    Can't wait till Wednesday when I get my cackle surprise so u went to tractor supply and bought these cuties to look at. 6- black pullets. Guessing black sex link and black australorp or black giant. 6- CX and 6- feather legged bantams and guessing they are Cochin. They are a soft gray with a red tint in the head. [​IMG]

    I would put some marbles or rocks in the water just as a precaution. I kept my bantams separate from the bigger chicks for about 3 days. But then I had ducks in the brooder with the bigger chicks, so I had to be careful about the tiny ones. =) I'm sure yours will be fine together. Watch them for about an hour and see if they peck at the bantams or what. [​IMG]
    You must be excited! =D
