    Just how tiny they are at first and how fast they grow!

    I just picked up the last (?) Chickie on my list. I have several babies in the Basement Brothel, all different breeds and ages. The oldest are seperated, but the rest ranging from less than 1 week to 2 weeks are all together.

    My newest, a 3 day old Mille Fleur, is SO much smaller than I thought and I was afraid she's get trampled even tho the others are still very small. So I had to jerry rig a partition in the container and I gave her the youngest, calmest, tho still twice her size chickie for company. Seems to be working. When she gets a little bigger I will try to combine them all again. As it is now, they can see and hear each other, but not get close enough to hurt her.

    Ho boy! Why do I always get myself into these predicaments. Guess id be bored without having to be the chicken problem solver.

    Quote:You keep your chicks in a brothel? So how much does a young cockerel need to pay for a visit?

    They get in for free as long as they bring a female friend!
