So, I've three questions. 1) When should I switch from chick feed to Grower/Layer Feed? 2) Any tips for sexing birds? My shipment was dropped and my Fry Pan barngains (Meat roo's) got all mixed up with my egg layers. (See bellow) SO not only are my breed's all mixed but so are genders. I had to separate some of the big chicks from the smaller (only two weeks old and a huge difference) 3) Should I keep DE in a dusting box inside the coop full time to prevent lice/mites? Anything good to mix in with it? I'd rather prevent it now vs have to deal with it later. No they arn't outside yet... but I think the bigger chicks are only a couple weeks off, what do you think? Sorry, no idea what breeds they are >.> Huge mix from Meyers... I couldn't resist also posting a photo of my Polish reject. I'm hoping it's a little hen, and have already named her Gaga (Friend commented Buff Polish look like Big bird gone drag) I'm happy she lived as she was shoved in for just warmth and not what I ordered, but is bloody cute!
