    I would be careful putting them together right away, the big ones could peck the little ones.

    My local L&M gets chicks on the 31st. With a second shipment on the 2nd of April. My husband already has marching orders and a list of chicks to pick up. The ramsey feed store sounds promising though. I have been looking for Doms for a while. Might be worth a weekend drive to get some.

    They went fast last year, when I decided to buy some I went down there and "poof" they was gone"!





    I know that is improper tenses, I am quoting an old TV song....

    I live about a mile from Ramsey farm and garden and im in the market for a new rooster soon. I have had a hard time leaving that place in the spring without a half dozen chicks.

    What kind of rooster do you need? You could be "nameless's savior.....

    He was hatched on June 1st last year, so if you wanted to stew pot him you could, I just do not stew pot my "named" birds which nameless technically is.

    He is a RIR or Production red or something like that I have no idea, I bought a mixed package of brown egg layers. He is a nice looking bird, except he lost the "fingers" on his comb to frostbite. Now he looks like he has a smooth strawberry comb or a cushion comb.


    I will sell him for the same price EJB sold me the new ones......(free). I just do not want to have to kill him myself.

    I will look for a picture of him... I cannot find one, I will try to get one tomorrow, if I can.

    Is he friendly with hens and children? RIR`s can be jerks.

    I would say it depends on the space you have for them. If you have plenty of room, I wouldn't worry about mixing them. I won't mix them over a week difference in age though, the older ones get just a little too big for the new ones to do that.
