    tonight after dark. A friend(2 hrs away) had me add 6 Ameraucana pullets to my order for her and now can't afford the gas to pick them up at this time. So out to the chicken house they go along with 2 flea market mutts same age. Just had to put them out as they are now roosting on the edge of their box and pooping on the floor all around it. Hope the 3 month olds don't hurt them. I misted everyone with ACV water to mess with their sense of smell so they'll wake up thinking the others belonged the whole time.

    ACV - what's that?

    I have two 8w Orps, and four 4w BR's I'm trying to figure out when to move them over because they are getting a bit big for the cage.

    Apple Cider Vinegar...I make sure I use organic ACV. Hope that works, I have not heard of using it for that. I add it to their water.[​IMG]

    Do you think I'm okay to combine those two groups?
