    My daughter is going to fertilize, lime and reseed the pasture. Her question is, should she keep the chickens off the pasture for a few days. She's afraid they'll eat something they shouldn't. I say if it rains after she puts everything down, it should be alright. Second question: Little Bit, my only child chick, will be 4 weeks old when I take the new (2 week old) chicks home. Will they be alright together? I feel so sorry for Little Bit, as all she knows is the chick in the mirror (herself). I want her to have other chicks for company. Anyone????

    keep them off of it, even if it rains, if they eat the lime, it will burn everything it comes into contact with in their little bodies.
