    They're very cute, but they'll grow really quickly... I got my 6 chicks 3 weeks ago, and they're now trying to fly out of their brooder every chance they get. [​IMG]

    BTW, although I'm no expert, I would recommend that you put some paper towel at the bottom of the brooder to give them some traction when walking around. The cardboard may be too smooth and they may end up getting their legs spread apart.
