    Thanks for the information. I was planning on getting my chicks from one of the breeders here in Indiana and not one of the big commercial hatcheries. So mid March is a good starting time for chicks in central Indiana?

    Raw.

    I will cook for chickens when I see a hen cooking food for her chicks [​IMG]

    Seriously, though, all the meat they find in a natural setting is raw and that's they way they're designed to eat it.

    Well, my BO is sitting. Yesterday I gave her two EE mix eggs (I believe the roo is my silkie but could be my frizzle as he has started, um, mingling with the ladies recently) and one I THINK pure silkie egg. I don't know how many of her own eggs she has. Can't be more than one or two as I had been collecting them until she refused to get up. Her chicks will be BO and Buff Brahma cross. Quite possibly the most laid back cross known to man. lol

    I am no expert since this has been my first year, But something I ran into when i got my chicks this past april is the outside temp.. I am not sure what your set up is, but I kept mine in a 4'x4' box in the house until it was warm outside for them. The longer they are in the house the more of a pain they are to clean up after. 6 week old peeps make more of a mess then 6 day old peeps and smell worse also... 32 peeps in the house at 6-7 weeks old is not so great. At that point my wifey says cold or not your all going outside now......
