    Hi BYC'ers,

    I started a new flock from day old chicks 2 weeks ago with 2 Easter Eggers and added another 2 Australorps a week ago.,
    I am still finishing the coop/run area but hope to be done this weekend, weeks before they will want to move in.
    First I thought I should get ready to lay pullets to avoid the hassle with raising them but after a few days I realized what a great experience this is to see them grow up. They are the most adorable creatures!

    Hi and welcome to BYC - thanks for joining us. Your chicks will thank you for a little time each day in the run, before they are fully ready to call the coop home. Here's a nifty idea for herding them up, once play time is over - https://www.backyardchickens.com/a/aarts-chick-corral

    Best wishes

    That's SweetP in my avatar pic. I just introduced the 2 Australorps to her and she wasn't quite sure what to make of it yet. So she does indeed look a bit startled. She's a darling though and has adopted them within minutes, taking on a motherly role while being a youngster herself. What a girl!

    Sounds like the name "Sweet Peas," really fits her. What a sweetheart . [​IMG]
