    This is when I brought then home last week, they are in a professional brooder now. I just love them! They are starting to grow feathers already!

    Chicks also try out their flying skills pretty early. That's when you need a wire top on the brooder. Sometimes chicks fly to the top and either fall out or jump out and cannot back get into the warm brooder. Also the top helps keep away house pets.

    G’Day from down under Barredrocks24 [​IMG] Welcome!

    As you have already received some links to great starting points, I will just wish you all the best.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]
