    The 8 chicks can be in the crate for now. I would move them outside with a heat lamp (assuming the lamp is secure, and won't fall) in a few weeks. Now is okay too. They are too young to be in the run (if that was not known).

    AWESOME idea with the ducks..I think you can get little marzipan duckies..may have to do that as my kid sis's baby shower cake with rubber when asked what she's having she replies "we're hoping for a baby, but it might be a hedgehog"
    Welcome! And I volunteer Sally!
    See...she volunteered herself!
    I'll offer to be the one who shows up with 20 roosters...though, knowing me, I'll leave with something else!
    I said "aww I want one" to the pic of Mindy on the Vet table...and fiancee looks over and goes NO! I tried to play innocent that I was talking about a chicken...but he's having none of it.
    PRECISELY how I feel! SOOO much happier now that the littles go home to their house.
    Welcome, if you'd like on the map, just post your zipcode.
    I think this is an awesome offer! I vote for you! So.....ummm.....well...ok....ya'll know I don't do anything normal right? This one is TOTALLY not my fault! Fiancee got a wild hair the other day and decided we needed to go get the marriage license...even though the wedding's not till October....but you know...these things expire after 60 days...and then you have to go get a new now we're playing the ultimate April Fool's joke on everyone....and getting married on April 1. We're still having the wedding in October...but it will be just for show...the paperwork will be all done.

    That is why I do injections. I know they are getting the correct dose, I can treat only the ones that are ill.

    sharron.... I think you missed something.... HE told you they have speckled sussex... now Radioman would know better than to tell me something like that unless HE wanted the new ones but didn't want to admit it! He can be sneaky that way! I don't have any sussex but I understand they tend to be good for meat and broodiness??? So never hurts to grab a few while you can if you know you can send them to freezer camp or have them raise little ones for you in the future.... Win/Win!!!! [​IMG]
    and like McC said, you can enjoy them as little ones and always trade them later if you change your mind! Sounds like good therapy to me!!
    Indiana County here.... what part of Cambria Co? we could be neighbors or an hour apart depending! LOL
