    I have 9 chicks (8 coochins and 1 undetermined) and a duckling I bought together 10 days ago. So they must be about 2 weeks by now. I also have 5 chicks (Americaunas) I picked up form Farm n Fleet a week ago. So prolly about 10 days old, right?

    I have been keeping them in 2 separate brooder boxes and washing my hand in between handling them all and so forth. When I pick them up, they try to peek over the side of the other box to see whose in there. So when can I put them together?

    IN another question, the duckling does not like water, but one of the chickies jumps right in! What should I do?
