I put a small animal cage in the run for my small blrw. I have a skewer on each side of the door so it only opens enough that the littluns can get in and out. I also have a feeder inside it, just in case the bigs are guarding the other feeders. They all file in the coop at night. My big boy makes sure all the littles are tucked up in bed before the other 2 bigs go in. He is only 1 month older than the babies. I was watching them tonight. the other cockerel was apparently in the wrong place his name is Joe Cocker. Braveheart is the main man stepped on his back and grabbed the scruff of his neck ordering Joe to his rightful place. Braveheart organizes the night time ritual every night and it runs like clock work. He really is a marvel. When we had the cornish rock xs he would stay down under the coop with them because they were too fat to get up the ramp. This was when he was only 4 weeks old. He put the other 2 up to bed first. I have just discovered the PC version of this forum. It is a different world. I don't know what to play with first. My PC was filled with terrible viruses for the past month. Jay (Hubs) Just had chance to fix it. Here is a hug for all the assistance you give. some giggles that I haven't been able to express before. The applause because you deserve it. I will reserve the slap for Ron. This is too much fun.
