I brought home 7 chicks from TSC yesterday. 3 Red Sex Links (pullets) and 4 Pullets. I'd done a lot of research and knew what I wanted when I got there... all that went out the window because they didn't have Sussex. Just bins of Reds or Pullets. Once I was standing in front of the bins, I didn't care what I got. I was taking some home! I've figured out what the "Reds" are. Am I right in guessing that the "Pullets" are a grab bag? When I got them home and put them in the brooder, six settled down fairly quickly, but one of the pullets was peeping loud and long. I finally picked her up and cuddled her in my hands and she went to sleep. I let her sleep for about a half hour and then set her back in the brooder. She drank and ate with the others and settled in just fine. I couldn't pull myself away! Horses got fed late. Hubby got fed later. I think I'm really going to like being a chicken "mommy". I'm looking forward to all the help I can get at BYC. Thanks in advance!
