G’Day from down under Minnetuna Welcome!
As you have already received links to some good starting points, I will just wish you all the best.
I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.
If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out
In what ways were they sick? They seem to have wide bodies and small heads.
they are growing alot slower than the others.one is the runt (pine bedding and hay make her itch and at one point she almost lost all her feathers) and another is have trouble walking but we are working with her.
Would it hurt them to stay in the house if they never get big enough to go outside? I'm worried that they won't get used to the heat here as they are to small to go outside. And I'm not sure of what breed they are.plus they seem really close to us.
