    I picked up my chicks yesterday. brand new chicken mom and they are the sweetest!
    4 australorps, 3 ameracauna, 1 barred rock,
    1 speckled sussex. The largest australorp almost looks like a pullet! At 6 weeks she is huge! twice the size of one of her sisters!. They are in Tupperware brooders on my enclosed porch. i think i am already addicted!!![​IMG]

    At six weeks they need more room. I hope you have your pen built. If not let them run around on the enclosed deck. They won't get out and nothing will get them.
