    :eek: All I needed was 2 Bantys for my sweet Rooster Dooster. I came home with 5 bantys, 2 araucanas, 2 barred rocks. Don't know how it happened. I am glad they didn't have any ducklings!

    I am sure rooster dooster will accept all his new girlfriends [​IMG] you have to keep them separate until they are the same size though.

    good luck,
    Henry

    Good Grief. I wouldn't know what to do with 30 at once. I have mine in the bathroom. Heatlamp and Space heater on. They are in a box in the tub. I was thinking of putting strae in the tub and letting them loose in it. Not sure what Hubby would think about that!

    Yep, it is very addictive. And you know what.....? They just had a study that showed that Chickens and fish owners who had panic attacks, were 10 times more likely to have less or no panic attacks/anxiety attacks on their current medication. Hmmm.....sounds like the chicks are great for are blood pressure too. Except of course when we are waiting for a hatch. Tehe!
