We have now had our little flock for a little less than 4 months. We got them at around a week old. They were just general hatchery chicks that were hatched in inner city schools by the extension and then were up for grabs for 4-H familys. We unfortunately lost one chick, but out of the 5 we for sure have 1 rooster, he just started crowing yesterday and sounds like a teen boy going through puberty. We will be re-homing homing him. We are guessing that the other four our hens based off of some opinions from some other 4-H'ers. The nesting box is currently blocked off, should we unblock it? Should we be switching their food over now, or wait until they start laying. We have two Austrolorp hens, a Rhode Island Red, and a Buff Orphington.
