Montanaskd's chicks seem like they had a harrowing journey, I hope they thrive now Our new littles are home and in the brooder now. We ended up with 3 buff orpingtons, 3 speckled Sussex, and 3 easter eggers. The BOs are about 3 weeks old, the other 6 chicks are around a week and a half. They just had a 40 minute car ride to get home, then into the brooder. They found food, warmth, and water within the first hour. So much fun to watch Our poor dog is so stressed out over them. They are triggering his prey drive like crazy, but he caught on really fast that we expected him to restrain himself. He's a good boy and is using all his self-control, but it is so hard for him that if he watches the chicks running around he actually starts to shake. We'll be working with him.
