We are relatively new to chicken keeping. Got our first pullets last spring and everything is going great. We have one Buff O. Rooster with a decent temperament, 4 Buff O. 1 Barred Rock and 1 RIR laying hens. We were considering letting them raise a few chicks this spring (IF one of them seemed inclined) but now my daughter wants to participate in the local 4H pullet project. Basically you get a handful of day old chicks and raise them until they are ready to go into the coop. Is this doable? I have heard that chickens can be mean to new arrivals. Anyone have any advice on what to do here? Thanks so much!!
