    I absolutely love my chickens and recently I added a milking goat, Truffle to live with them! It's working out fantastic, just don't make the mistake that I made if you do something like this, don't have a deep water bowl for the live stock. I had a sad day when one of my chicks ended up going in that drinking water and had no way of getting out or standing till it got help. It's much better to have a low automatic water. Good luck with your chicks everyone, I hope they stay safe, health and bring tons of happiness to you!

    That was nice of you to post a warning based on what you learned from the unfortunate experience.

    Thanks for sharing such valuable advise. It's unfortunate that we have to learn lessons the hard way sometimes. Best of luck with your girls and [​IMG]
