I caught a big rooster last week, Little Jerry, that somebody had abandoned at our local lake. Since he's already been dumped once in his little life, I didn't have the heart to get rid of him. So, since I'll be setting myself up for one chicken, I thought I'd get some hens so I can have eggs. I just bought a Buff Orpington and a Gold Sex Link, Harriet and Mabel. Right now, I have the "girls",(fingers crossed), in the house in a big guinea pig cage with the medicated food, water, and some of Little Jerry's hen mix. I have cockatiels and a parrot, so I know birds, but am I doing everything right for these chicks?
