    well, my new 3 chicks are only 5 weeks old but my neighbor and I
    (um, she love chicks, too) today bought 2 more chicks each.!!!![​IMG]
    Ah, I had not thought of more but couldn't resist. I bought another
    Buff Orpington and a New Hampshire Red. They are so TINY. I forgot
    how tiny they are. Feel more confident this time around.
    New chicks are in a brooder inside the coop where the bigger ones
    are. How old do my brand new chicks need to be before I blend them
    with the bigger ones?
    Happy chick mom!
