We weren't quite ready yet but it didn't take long to get everything together. We got them settled in nicely. The only big thing we didn't do yet is to move the coop to the backyard. So it's still in our machine shed but we've got it nice and secure. DH thought it would be better in there since it's supposed to get pretty cold tonight. The pics look reddish because of the heat lamp. More are on my blog here: http://lookslikechickenscratch.blogspot.com/2011/05/chicks-have-arrived.html and the question. How fast will these chicks (there are 12) go through a gallon of water? I got the vitamin stuff to add to their water but it says to mix it fresh daily. If they won't go through a gallon in a day I am going to try to mix up a half gallon. Or is it that important to mix it fresh daily?
