  1. So this is my first time rearing chicks and I'm so excited! I hope this thread goes as well as Farmyard Bizzaro is going! Lol.
    I received 5 chicks off my cousin and I only know one breed so far and that is a Polish. I hope I get to know more about them and chickens in general soon and can't wait to update every week or so...
    Let me know if you enjoy the updates!

    Congrats!
     
  10. Well my chicks have been moved into a small cage into my pullets cage and neither group is very happy. My polish has grown so big I fear it's a rooster and that's not good! I let out my pullets and their rooster and shut the cage door and let out my chicks for a starch and they loved it! Hopping and bouncing around and flapping their wings! I think I'll do that more often now! Can't wait until they have their own cage.
    They even had their first dirt bath and the pullets were NOT happy! They saw an egg and were picking and pecking it for ages in fascination!
    I will post pictures when BYC let's me :sigh
    Anyway that's all!
