    congrats, that's great!! [​IMG]
    i am a new chicks owner too, but from what i have read and now experienced is that the BR's are more likely to get pasty butt. mine all did, but they were very stressed from shipping. but the problem went away after i removed the paper towels. (i cleaned em up too). even though i replaced the towels 3 times a day they were always in poo. i stopped using them in a day 1/2.

    last night i got a new 5 month old silkie. another rooster. had to get in between them in minutes after introducing him to the others.
    so then now i am building an other coop just for him and a couple of his own hens hehe
