I have these 10 chicks that someone gave me. They are 8 weeks old-bantam cochin, silkies, and oegb mix. I was going to take to roos (5) to the auction this past Tuesday, but I overslept. That isn't a problem now. They are screechy crowing at all hours of the day and night. I had to go out there Tuesday night, my anniversary, at 1:30 in the morning because they were crowing to the heat lamp. Now I scoop all the roos up at night and make them sleep in a dog crate in the yard. But as I am sitting here on BYC, the dang things are attempting to crow and I'm sure the neighbors whose house is 15 feet away are wondering wth is going on! Anyway, I can't wait for Tuesday to roll around again. Thank goodness the auction s every week and not every month, or we'd be eating tiny rooster soup!
