Hi BYC folks, I have a dilemma here. The neighbor across the street has let a flock roam free-this is very common in New Mexico- and mostly they stay in my yard due to the tree they roost in. I now have 5 baby chicks, 7 or 8 weeks old in my spare room, and now another hen showed up with 9, now 6 babies. I took in the first batch because a dog ate the hen. I dog-proofed the yard, but my question is, do I let her alone? I feed the flock chick mash and chicken mash, and give them water, but I am not wanting to maintain a coop. Any suggestions?
