I now am the proud father of 9 RR chics and only one is a roo. They are about a week old. Picked them up from my local feed store. They are eating and drinking and cheeping...and are a crackup even the WIFE held one and she wanted nothing to do with them. My grandsons think they are the coolest!! Now to finish the coop!, got the wall framed in the shed the run is just about finished.....always more work!!!!
