    My hubby is the BEST... [​IMG] he found some Araconas (sp?) and brought me 12 of these sweet little babies [​IMG] I didn't think he would bring so many... [​IMG]
    I've got them with my rescue chics... poor things were scared of the babies at first... do yall think they'll be okay?? Thier about 2-3 weeks apart in age...
    I'm still trying to wake up [​IMG] I'll get some better pics when I'm more awake. [​IMG]

    Just watch over them for several hours. I personally had no trouble mixing the ages with mine. As long as you see no evidence of sickness in any of them, that is usually what most people worry about. [​IMG]

    They are cute aren't they... [​IMG]
    that's why I'm dragging this morning... stayed up too late & watched them. I'm gonna have to get them in a bigger brooder soon.
    My rescue chics have awlays been so quiet, different acting than any other chics I've ever raised.Those two have been thru alot, I thought they would enjoy some company.
    I'm hoping tonight I can slip a few chics under some broody hens. [​IMG] Be nice if they could help me raise a few... [​IMG]

    I was wondering about your rescue chicks. Did you ever find out what they were? Have you ever slipped chicks under a broody? If so how did it turn out? I was curious cause my friend Freebie has a Buff that is broody big time and the first clutch wasn't fertile, so she suspose to have gotten fertile new eggs. She is candling them today to see if these are fertile. I told her is they weren't she shouldn't try anymore eggs and to buy some newborn chicks and put them under her. Buffy is serious about this brooding thing.

    Hey Hotwings, I've never tired slipping babies under a broody,first time. I've heard folks do it with success before. I would rather do that then risk getting more roos,I've got the worst luck. [​IMG]
    I don't know what breed my rescue chics are exactly yet.There's a post in the breeds section,somebody thought they might be Australorps...impatiencely waiting for them to feather out more....[​IMG]
    Hey Mudhen, My hubby he's so sweet, he said he only picked out the most cutest chics [​IMG] he was talking to them on the way home & putting his hand in the box make sure they were warm.
    Oh yeah I hear ya about the roses, I'll take chics anyday.

    Everyone take care now, gotta go love some babies [​IMG] Miriam

    What a great hubby you have! My hubby ain't so bad either, DH, DS and DSIL spent this week end building a coop for KrisRose and one for me!! Almost done!
    Those chicks are adorable!! But, I don't think the rescue are Astrlorpes. You'll find out soon! Good luck with your babies![​IMG]
