I recently bought 16 chicks from hoovers hatchery about 4 weeks ago. I bought 8 barred rocks and 8 golden laced Wyandotte. When I went to pick them up one was extremely sick and died within the hour(Golden laced). Then a barred rock got sick and died as well. Now I have 14 healthy chicks that are growing extremely fast. I have 4 male chicks (2 of each breed). Now I know that for now I will be okay, but what will I do in the future. The chicks will turn into roosters and they will begin to fight for the hens. By the way I plan to sperate both breeds to keep the bloodlines seperated. Also I have another problem with my dog. He will kill any animal smaller than him which worries me since the chicks will soon be going outside. What do you guys think I should do. Sorry for making this long but more details could help fond a solution.
