    Twist has been busy with a lot on his mind and Granny me thinks needs to get some good sleep at a decent hour. They are biggest the stirrers of this pot! I'm a bit under the weather, so humor is escaping me.

    It's more of a size thing, I think, and it really depends on individual temperament. The chicks should be pretty well feathered out and fleet of foot, so they can escape in case your sweet Brahma turns into Attila the Hen. You can try it, but watch carefully to see how things go. Expect some po po po po po poking, but it shouldn't be too aggressive- no feather pulling and no blood drawn. Moving the Brahma into chick territory will work better than putting chicks into an older bird's territory.

    How do you arrange all the new birds to integrate them?

    How old are your babies? Is that the hen that has been by herself?

    Mutt, I was in Target this afternoon, and a young woman was walking her Ridgeback through the store, so of course I had to go pet her. (the dog, not the girl) What a sweet calm dog [​IMG], from a breeder in this county too. My mind was flooded with memories of our wonderful dogs. So, guess what's just been added to my bucket list!


    Your opinion please, on male versus female dogs, general temperament wise, that would go better for a mature woman who is NOT type A personality. Is one sex a bit more relaxed than another? I asked this question way back on this thread, but want to hear about your experiences.

    WELL... I'm stacked pretty high right now. :oops: No room for a proper quarantine. My coop is just for sleeping, run is just for eating, and the rest of the yard for free ranging. Right beside the coop is the ugly tractor, which is where I put the new babies. Near the back is the cute tractor, which is where I put the big girls. So basically playpen method, but large scale.
