    x2. I know nothing. Haven't ever considered using it because what we're using is working, but...I'd like to know more about what it is.

    Is that a Brinsea? I agree with you - they definitely need more space. Really cool to see such new babies.

    Do you have any pics of the Cochins? And what age/size are the chicks you have for sale? Send pics and info to [email protected]. I might be in for grabbing a Cochin chick to join my other chicks.

    My very first chicks I ordered two years ago in February. They did not ship well and half of them died. 15 survived and 3 of them had crooked toes. You can tape them and straighten them out. It worked well for 2 of them but not for Cuckoo Maran pullet I got. She still has one almost wadded up foot and they other one is almost straight. She is two years old and she doesn't seem to bothered at all by her foot. I would not hatch any of her eggs for fear she passed on those bad feet. I think if the chicks are really stressed it can cause bad feet. It is not likely you will see those at a feed store. I am sure they cull those if they come in that way.
