    hubby brought 9 chicks back home from our coop (the ones i posted about in different post); he moved the hens but figured the coop is not set up for small babies, they could get eaten , and the hens seemed indifferent moms so now have 9 few day olds and 8 month olds.
    our months olds are already flying up to perches and stuff (are all breeds that precocious?)

    i was curious if the hens will start laying again, and if so, then i will jsut hatch them here... these are thai fighting fowl, so im wondering if their egg/brooding cycle is the same as other chickens (just liek certain breeds of dogs and goats have specific heat cycles due to their tropical oriented genetics, or primitive type genetics(like canaan dogs)
