I got 16 chicks that are about a week old. I would love to start giving them treats, like crushed up oatmeal and maybe grapes, maybe even some little peas? Anyways, we are having company for spring break, they are coming next Thursday. We thought about putting them in the big coop with my 3 other laying older hens. My dad told me he was going to put the babies in a BIG cardboard box, and half up the big coop with some chicken wire, so the older ones won't mess with the baby, and plus so the babies can get used to running around in their coop.. Thanks! Hopefully I will get some pictures up! Thanks!
