    i had 1 rooster who always chase my favorite rooster, I had 2 rooster and 30 hens (they are 1 year old)
    I am thinking about using peepers to him
    Is that okay using peepers all the time
    while using peeper, can he see my hens and mate with her?

    This easter my friend ask if i could bring my baby chickens to egg hunting gathering
    Is that okay bring my babies to those lil kids?
    Now my baby chicks are 5 days old, they are going to be 4 weeks old on easter.
    I am afraid my chickens will panic if too many kid touch them.

    thank you

    This might seem like a stupid question, but what's peepers?

    About Easter though, I'd probably not bring the chicks. They'll get stressed in transport and could get hurt. If you really want to try, make sure you are always watching the chicks when the kids are around because even if the kids know to be careful, accidents happen.
