    I just got these 2 bantums for Christmas for my husband. (really he wanted them, he just didnt know it until he got them.)

    so the cochin loves to lay under the brahma when ever she is stressed out (that would be everytime she sees people, dog, noise, anything.) Now the brahma seems to be ok with it, but is that normal?

    Also, she likes to lay on her side like a dog, legs sticking out, not all the time, but I noticed it today. Also, she has so many feathers, she looks like she is walking and dragging her belly on the floor. If she were outside now, she would be dirty.
    What soap do I use on chicks?

    I have seen mine laying together in nests they have dug in the dirt. Not uncommon for hens to be in nest boxes together either. U can use Dawn liquid dish detergent.
