    Well I got my chicks today. I think I'll make this thread into my chicken blog. I'll post updated pics of the ladies and photos of the coop.


    We have 4 chicks total. Two Barred Rocks and two Sussex Reds.

    The bedding is wood pellests. My local feed store uses them for all their chicks. They say it's very good.

    Get your next size tub ready, they will out grow that in about 15 minutes [​IMG] .
    Walmart has one for about 15$ that will last a little longer if your looking... (all learned from very recent experience)

    Grats on the chicks they are very cute [​IMG]

    I think you have about 2 weeks with that tub... They will start making a mess and if they feel croweded, may start to peck on each other.

    I started my 6 in a fish tank... 20 gallons, I think? It lasted a week. They grow insanely fast!

    Adorable chickies! [​IMG]

    how big do I need to go to last the entire 6-8 weeks?

    I might transfer them to the bathtub next. Do you think that will last the duration?
