Hi BYC Members. I split an order of chicks with some people from Mcmurray. 11 of the 25 came DOA, just awful. Anways, the 8 I ordered were all dead, so they are sending me more (including 16 that will be "packing peanuts). SO - my question is if I leave them in the coop outside of a box or tank, etc (I have 4 in a 10 gallon aquarium out there now from the last order), will the hens that are 1+ yr old be okay with them? I am afraid they might get trampled or stepped on or just pecked to death. I really don't know where to put that many chicks ( I assume some will be doa again). Any thoughts. My coop is big enough for the 7 hens I have now, but they "fly" down from the window sill where they roost to get out he door and I want the babies to be safe. Any advice would be helpful. FYI - I plan on only keeping a few of these - the rest I will give away.
