Newbie, so sorry if these are dumb questions but: 1. If I seperate the chicks into two rabbit cages (2'x4') side by side so they can see/talk to each other... when the coop gets built will I have TWO sets of pecking orders? So two different bullies trying to duke it out? Would it be better to put all the aggressive birds in one and let the meeker birds have their own? 2. Am I feeding these chicks too much or are they going to be larger than a Macy's Thanksgiving Day helium balloon when I'm done? 15 EE's that are 8 days old have eaten eleven pounds of food so far...and they're HUGE! They're flying for pete's sake! 3. Thanks to whomever said to use paper towels...but I'm wondering how you do it? With the 15 if I don't clean twice a day it's...rank in that spare bedroom. I yank them all out once a day and put them into the tall rabbit cages while I take all the towels out...is that too much handling? 4. When they get real aggressive with each other, like pecking at eyes...I grab them up and hold them upside down and sternly tell them they've been bad....are they going to need chicken therapy when they grow up? 5. I've got one chick that looks me right in the eye and comes to the edge of the cage (they're in a stock tank until I move them to clean). She'll get up onto my hand. So, already a 'lap chicken'? 6. They were started on medicated chick starter from Meyer but I got scared reading about the low protein pecking thing so I also supplemented with the gamebird which is way higher protein. Then I switched to organic starter from another company and their poop is dark brown...I gave yogurt last night. Is it ok to have their main feeder continue to be the organic but their 'treat' bowl to be gamebird? Since there's so many of them and some of them are bullies I always have a coupla feed dishes in there anyway. THANK YOU for all the wisdom: I wouldn't have gotten chickens if it wasn't for this website. PS-Forgot the name but so sad for whoever posted their EE laid a brown egg...bought these from Ideal who 'promised' they were authentic Ameracaunas...but reading this board has made me wonder what the heck I've got in that bedroom.
