As a first post I want to say thanks. Got chicks as birthday gift in april and have had a blast.The answers to questions are all here for the finding.you folks do a great job of passing along info. I'll get pictures posted of the coop I put out back and the newfoundland dog friend my peeps hang out with. We have 6 kids (one 5yr old at home) 6 grand kids with their parents out and about.2 dogs 3 cats and 9 assorted chickens. Wife paints and plays with art and gardening while I have a wood shop. Enough about me. I have one egg a day. Its been like this since 10/12. All the chicks got here in the same week about 4/25. They are all eating well and pooping normally. Is this just me needing to be patient or? Also- will they drink from moving water?I have A plan to use a fish tank water pump to keep it from freezing in the coop here in the mich winter. a valve to monitor the flow control and some pvc tubing already in the shop should put it at aout 10$. Again Thanks for the help past present and future.
