Hi all! I am new to BYC, but have been visiting with all my questions since I began raising chickens this spring. I LOVE these animals. I want to make it a peaceful home for all of us as a family in my backyard. I have 16 baby hens, 1 new rooster, 1 cat, and a 3-year-old son, and a 5-year-old daughter. I also have a loving husband who is less than loving of the chickens. I have 16 baby chicks (1 week old) I just bought a 2-year-old Silver Phoenix Rooster. I plan on keeping the chicks in the coop within a smaller cage, so they can see but not touch each other for about a month. Any thoughts on this process from the experienced?
