For all those who have asked me to post pics, and for all those curious about this, here ya go. This is my bantam black cochin rooster, Fluffy. This is the setup I have for my newest chicks. It's a giant plastic tote. With an itty bitty heat lamp. 4" deep shavings, food, water, & grogel on a plank above shavings level. fluffy, from the left side, a couple of chicks exploring. How many chicks do you think there are? This is the view from above. right side of fluffy, you can see SOME of the chicks. This is about half. There are 37 standard-sized chicks and 6 ducklings in here. If you look closely, you can see some tiny little stilts in the feathers. What a roo!
