Last month I got chickens from ideal poultry. I'm new at raising chickens but I'm a converted now....love them. My father have sheeps....I raised one of the and she is my baby but she hangs out with my father's herd all the time. She is really people friendly. Well, she was stolen 4 days ago. I'm devastaded. My Dora had a 1 month old baby that I'm trying to raise but he misses his mom and the rest of the herd so much is making my hearth cry. I had been force feeding him for the last days but was hard on both of us. he was crying non stop until in a desperate movement I decided to mix my chickens with the baby sheep. He is so calm!!!!! chicken magic. He even accepted the bottle....finally. they have known each other for only a few hours and the chickens are walking in the sheeps back...sleeping in his back...and he looks happy. Maybe changing the herd for a flock works. Any experiences like that. Tips on making this work. once the baby is big he will be returned to the herd (same pastures the chickens will free range) I'll post pictures soon. They look adorable. But I worry this is ok for both ....the chickens and the sheep...LOL...Just realized they all are one month old.
