So I purchased 7 chicks and a 2yr old RIR bantam a month ago. 2 days after I got them I bought 2 more at the feed store. Anyway the 9 are out for the brooder and the RIR was not getting along with them at all. Since I really needed to get the babies out of the box I had to re home my RIR since my permanent coop is not built yet. Well the other day I don't know if I was have empty brooder syndrome or what but I ordered 12 more 3 BR 3 BO 3GLW and SlW. I have gone crazy. I am not even supposed to have chickens and now I will have 21!!! LOL But I think I am going to grow and make sure of the ones that are pullets and only keep 6.
