They were abandoned by an asian family that had a car wreck in front of our house.
there were 600 plus birds just bought from the hatchery.
males and females mixed.
I don't have the facilitys to care for this many.
please post pics and ages would be nice. How do we know you really have that many chicks that sounds like a lot to be bought from a hatchery and then dumped. Sorry im the type of person that has to double check things to be sure its good and that many chick being dumped just doesnt sound right. Its probably me i just like to investigate where my money might be going before i send any out. Thanks
Their just a few days maybe 4 now.
These folks had a bad wreck and were hurt.
Transported to hospital, could'nt speak english.
Pointed to chicks, pointed to house, pointed to wife.
The birds are on my pool table at the moment and need to go.
they have white wing feathers just starting to show.there are 400-500
What care should I be giving in the meantime?
I know nothing about poultry and some are dieing.
I've taken them out of the cartons and rigged a pen on top of my pool table.
Water in ice trays and corn meal.
They bunch up and suffocate the ones on the bottom.
I set up lamps suspended over the table.
Should I divide them into sections?
I'm taking them to the co-op market Sat. if not sold by then.
if there cornish make sure there is no corners in the cage go to a feed store buy some chick starter and just feed them in the morning and let there food run out that many birds on a pool table sounds crowded do you have a bigger place to stick them u may have to split them up i think 200 would be better on the pool table just make sure they stay warm o and no cedar shavings for bedding. you could keep a few and process them in 6 to 10 weeks if there Cornish
