    I got 4 chicks from someone in cbus,oh. that bought them at tsc in april and decided they were too much care(3 rir and 1 barred rock)and this bunch has been so adorable.They've been housed with the big chics for about 2 weeks now(chicks are appx. 10 weeks old)and are pecked at in a.m. so I call"baby baby" and all 4 have learned to come to the call and out thru a gate I open(big chix are meanwhile attacking food just given)and then they follow me to their own eating area.Once everyone is loose in pasture for the day its peaceful(babies have learned to dust bathe with big chix) and going to bed is still a little effort. the babies are roosting on OUTSIDE of chicken shed on top of fencing so I carry them in most nights still. Hopefully they learn to go inside and roost once more roosts are added.LOVE THE CHICKENS!!!!![​IMG]
