    Hi All,

    New here and just wanted to say that I now have 7 chicks - 2 RIRs, 2 barred rocks, 2 araucanas and 1 buff orph. I set up a rabbit cage as a brooder and so far so good. I'm giving them plenty of food and fresh water.

    Very exciting!!!

    Also, that cage is going to get really small QUICK!!! [​IMG] I have 7 on a large dog crate from 2 weeks to 4 w old and they are already running out of room!! If 2 of them spread their wings at once is a gurantee fight! lol
