I got my first batch of chicks today from McMurray. 15 BR pullets, 2 Ameracauna pullets, 7 RR pullets and 1 RR roo. Got the box home and one of the BR was almost dead and I had to cull. (no fun) I have two more BR with problems. 1 has splayed legs and I hobbled it with some tape and it is doing well. One more as a leg that it cannot stand on. No visible difference in the size of the joints so I don't think it is swollen. She is getting around but barely. I would not be surprised if it did not make it. I don't know if anyone would have any suggestions about what to do. I finished my coop just last weekend and am raising in the coop with two brooder lights (very secured) and an 18" brooder guard. I have amost all of the ventilation blocked up to ensure no drafts and a consistent temp. I actually had to turn one of the lamps off this afternoon because it was getting pretty warm in there. I am confident this arrangement will work. I would love to post pics but my camera was in for repair and is not back yet. My daughter took lots of pics but I have not gotten a hold of the memory card yet. I plan on keeping the eight RR, 2 ameracauna and three of the BRs. If anyone from Northern NJ wants a few BR pullers let me know.
