    I did a page about my Chickville for all who asked about it and it can be found here
    This is working for me and the babies. Im not ingoring what others have to say about not doing this, its just I saw with my own eyes that it can work and I had to try. I didnt want to build another coop or keep my babies in a tiny area. Also I am not working outside the home as of right now and the babies get alot of my attention so I watched to make sure it was going to work. I actually sat out there 2 days to make sure all was fine. If I wasnt watching my daughter was.
    I truely appreciate all the wonderful advice I get here and love learning from everyone here.

    Sweet. Chickville is a really good idea. By the way, what type of chicks are those? It looks like they are New Hampshires. I have 6 New Hampshire pullets and my runt that is 10 weeks old looks exactly like yours in picture #4.Here is a picture of my baby New Hampshire. She is the one on the right of the picture. Good luck, Chickenman8

    Thank you for your kind words! Iam not possitive on what kind they are, see when I ordered them I had a great gentleman that worked at the feed store help me and I was so excited to have them ordered I forgot what I got. I have been told from the great people here that they are RIR. I will go back to the feed store soon and ask the same gentleman what they are soon tho.
    Beautiful chickens you have there!

    Good job keeping those chickies safe from their big sisters. It's no fun always being picked on...no pun intended! [​IMG]
