    She just got her chicks in at the feed store today, picked up a couple Barred Rocks and Rhode Island Reds going to get a RIR Rooster when they get old enough to sex at the store. She only orders pullets so little chance to get a rooster right now.

    Oh my! Lucky you! Congratulations! You might want to use paper towels over your newspaper. It is more absorbent and the chicks can get a better grip.

    X 2. Newspaper is too slick for fragile little legs. You want something with more traction. Congrats!
