    My wife and I have a teacup Yorkie and he likes trying to lick them. He licked one other day and the chick chirped. Then he did it again and she chirped again. Now they are friends.

    We got our cheepies in the mail today!!!!! Yay!!! Sad that 3 were dead in the box, and another that I have separated I don't think is going to make it. And stinking Meyer Hatchery forgot to put in our 2 blue cochins. =( But Im super excited anyway. We're going to sell the ones we're not keeping as pullets. We're planning on doing it again next year, so we built a brooder that will last, but that we can flat pack into the shed. So here's the brooder too.

    So you have the info: the brooder was simple. 4 pieces of plywood, 2 sets of hinges, enough 2x2 posts. We left the plywood whole on the sides, so we didn't have to put a top on it. Cut one in half for the ends, since they're 4x4s. We then cut them in half and put on hinges so we can get in and out easily. Put hooks on the top to hold it up (secure hooks, since we have kids). Put left over 2x2s along the bottom so we had somewhere to screw the boards in along the bottom. The heater holder is just an old metal bookshelf from goodwill. When we're done, we unscrew it, and pack it flat in the shed. It's big enough for up to 32 chicks (as long as you don't keep them in there too long.)

    Oh yeah, and we also put in the viewing window in one side for the kids, but of course put chicken wire across so they can't reach in and grab anyone.

    "Many times there will be very light colored chicks (pictured on the left) and very dark chicks (pictured on the right). Some think this is an indicator of sex or color quality. This is not true in the slightest.
    Wyandottes do not possess the specific gene to display color as a sexing method. "

    I thought if they had sex specific color traits they were sex-links and therefore not silver Lace Wyandottes.
