I recently purchased chicks that are now about 12-14 weeks old. I split them with a friend to fill the minimum of 25 order. My friend has not yet picked them up and the chickens are very attached to us. They follow my family around the yard and not to metion play with my German Shepard," Thats right Play with him", He chases them and then he turns around and they chase him. I once caught them taking a nap together. My question is should I remove 12 of the birds at this point or should I tell my friend sorry but he waited to long. ( I expected him to pick them up in 6 weeks.) I not asking becuase of a moral issue Im more concerned to cause stress or damage the flock. Thanks for your input.
