    How long do the chicks stay on crumbles? We got a bag from the feed store when we bought them.. but it's just a small paper bag with 2# of crumbles, so I'm not sure how long that will last, with the pooping in the feeder and such.
    Also, I think I am going back today to get the remaining bantams from the feed store.. I hated to leave those last 3 there.. and since we are planning a 16 square foot 2 story coop, will this be large enough for 5 bantam? (one Pekin and the others look to be BTBJ)

    Get yourself at least a 50# of Purina Sunfresh, you will use it and much more!!

    I am totally bummed!! The feed store sold the rest of the bantams before I could get off work.. so it's still just the two of them for now..

    Does everyone get bit by the chicken fever like this?
