    I should change my signature soon. My friend has a hen that hatched 5 chickies and she offered them to me. I told her once they were older, about a month, so that they were wtih their mom a good amount of time. One of her dogs bit one and killed it [​IMG] , few days later one went missing mysteriously then ANOTHER one [​IMG] , finally the last two drowned tragically in a pail of water where her dogs drink water :mad: . If only those two could have waited 10 more days! [​IMG]
    I'm really sad now and I'm going to have to buy some instead, which brings up two bad things: the hens may not go broody and greater chance of getting roos. hopefully everything turns out well. poor poor chicks though. [​IMG]

    I'm sorry for the loss of the chicks...accidents happen unfortunately happen to the wee ones., especially if there's dogs and cats around.
