    Stinky poo! ANOTHER REASON to start chicks on Fermented FEED!! I start them after a few days and offer both and eventually take out the crumbles.

    remember to change her foot pad at least once a day, this will give you the chance to check it and let her walk and see how it looks and also to let it breath a little.

    We have 13 in the brooder and 12 either drying off, pipped n resting, and a few zippers.
    Harmony did well! she had one dead in the bunch, the rest are showing life to hatching!
    We had 24 eggs shipped from CPL and about 6 of our own to start, therefore I am seriosly impressed with this shipped hatch!
    CPL packed those eggs AWESOME and added heat packs, I think the difference with this batch was the fact that they were double boxed
    and the boxes were LARGE and she had those big huge bubbles in the outer box with the heat packs, which I am sure took
    most of the road jostling away! It probably is an expensive way to ship, but in the end I would think well worth paying extra
    to have them packaged good!

    Just wanted to double check, if I'm giving my chicks hard boiled egg yolk they don't need grit do they?

    I have a question... One of my five chicks is being a douchebag. They are almost 4 weeks old. The jerk chick keep harassing all of the other chicks. One used to be the most dominant, but now douchy chick is even giving her trouble. The chick pecks at all of the other chicks, pushes them out of the way for food, jumps and flies and is a general meanie. Could it be a roo? Or is this normal behavior for pullets at this age? I'm attaching a pic. I just want to keep my other chicks safe.
