I just stopped by for more starter, and now we have 2 more chicks!

    The feed store owner was busy with another customer, so I just had me a looksie at the chicks they had while waiting my turn.

    Long story short, we now have 2 new chicks, much younger and smaller than the other two we have. This is it, my limit is 4. I have four chicks in my living room.

    So, I've got the little guys separate from the bigger little guys. I believe my coop and run will be roomy enough to house all four, although I will gladly add on if need be, plenty of time for that. I'm still afraid to keep anyone outside at night even though I've yet to see a coyote or other preditor, I don't want to use my "babies" as bait. They're fine in the living room "coops" for now. I do take the bigger little guys outside for supervised pen time.

    Anyway, so now we have more chicks. Any tips.

    Also the breeds are Wyandotte, Rhode Island Red, and two Silkies. No clue about gender.

    And one more question. Is there a "general" place on this forum to post in daily? I feel silly posting in introductions since I've already made mine, but wasn't sure where else to go...

    [​IMG] Going to the feed store when they have chicks in is always risky. [​IMG] Enjoy your new fuzzy butts. Try posting your general posts under the "Pictures & Stories of my Chickens" section.

    [​IMG] and [​IMG] from Ohio. So glad you joined. That chicken math creeps up on you and you don't even know it. [​IMG] That's is why I make the DH build my pens with screws. It is easier to make bigger. [​IMG]
