1. Zeal and Meep are five weeks old, and we've just switched over to another feed. They have officially rejected it. Is it really reasonable to buy another bagful of the old kind? I did gradually switch over but they were smart enough just eat the old kind, there's a visual difference. 2. I know everyone thinks that sneezing is no big deal, when it's a little bit. When, however one is sneezing a lot, then what? Zeal is sneezing aplenty, and her nostrils are wet with discharge. (aka chicky snot) However, no, to anyone who says stinky discharge is bad, I have not smelled it, partially because Zeal likes to peck my nose every. single. time. my face gets near her. 3. My two chickies are hybrids, black sex links, so I know for sure that they're female. However they have little stub-like thingy-majigers on the back of their legs. Do all chickens have these, or not? 4. No, Washington isn't as cold as you think. So far, it seems that we're around the 50's range. When can they stay permanently outside? They've been taking short breaks outside since they were two weeks old. And if so, what type of coop should I have? Tractor or coop w/ run? 5. Zeal and Meep are residing in the garage currently with *before* a 100 watt lamp. I switched over to 60 when they were 3 weeks, they didn't seem to need that much heat. But if I turn the lamp off, even for a tiny bit, the garage goes pitch-black. So how am I supposed to rear them off the lamp? List of my worries are above. Thanks very much. Plus, some of my questions were in other forums but I never saw any reply to them.
