    Starting a new thread rather than continuing to bump the Eaton Swap listing back to the top when it's over and done with ... *g*

    This past weekend we came home with (8) Isa Brown / red sex link pullets, 3-4 days old, from TSC, as well as (5) frizzle pullets from frizzledhen ... our hubby-made brooder is divided so each batch of chicks gets the heat, feed and space they need.

    We tried to stick the little beepers under a very broody hen Saturday night, but she rejected them so she's out "getting her mind right" and the babies are going to be spending their first 8 weeks or so in the brooder.

    Some of the frizzles are nearly ready to join the flock, and others need some more time under the lamps. Might see how the oldest ones do this weekend if the temps get back up in the 70s-80s like they were before we got this dry blizzard crud.

    Best of luck!

    Some times broodies can be just crazy in the head.
