    Hi there, [​IMG]and welcome to BYC!

    You will need to thin these babies out a bit to keep them healthy and alive. They are way too crammed into this area.

    But I wish you all the luck with your new babies and to enjoy them!!

    Hey thanks! About 30 of them are 2wks older so I separated them in a bigger container. I let them out in the big pen when the sun is out. They love it!
