This will be my first time raising chicks. I've started with feathered pullets above 6 weeks old. I am getting my first day olds this weekend. Is there any advice you could give me, that isn't already in the learning centre? Not only am I getting new chicks this weekend (breeder), My cochin hen, Janet, started setting on Saturday. She is a broody monster sitting on 11 eggs total now (took away two this morning, as they were cold and not under her). She is laying on mixes. I will likely use them for meat (roos) and eggs (hens) if I don't sell them. Under her are 2 silkie eggs, 3 cochin/barred rock mixes, 2 BO/BR mixes, and 4 pure BR eggs. The chicks I'm getting this weekend are Easter Eggers (4), Frizzles (3+ however many more he can hatch out), and Mottled Houdan (4). I have rubber-maid bins for now. How quick will they grow out of that?
