    Hiya! All

    How easy or hard is it to join baby chicks on to an already existing flock?

    Last night we come back unexpectedly late and our poor girls were attacked by foxes, we now only have 2 chickens, 1 broody one seating on 3 eggs and to cockerels, so we would like to add to the flock.

    Thanks you all
