First time raising youngsters and I want to make sure they are well protected. No problem with feed -- that came with the girls. Just wanted to read about them at this age and what to expect. I'd also like to handle them so they get used to being picked up. Is this the time to begin? Do I need to keep them separated from adult hens? I also have two White Delaware and one Silver-Laced Wyandotte. They are eleven months old. Any references, advice or experiences from any of you will be very much appreciated.
