Well-- our lil' family has grown again! Started with a mixed batch of Bantams (12) in Early may, then added 10 Rocks (Barred and Partridge) in June... Everyone is getting along well now, and love their new "coop" (My 12 x 14 office converted with tarps and such) so we decided to go ahead and get our new chicks now instead of in the spring (easier to introduce while everyone is young!) We got quite the "egger" assortment... Australorps, Aracaunas, Wyandottes, Turkens, Californians and Buff Rocks... Got them From Ideal (all the way to Michigan from Texas in about 36 hours with NO fatalities!!) and they are VERY healthy and friendly little gals! Only question is-- this is our 1st batch of truely "New" babies-- all our other chicks were a couple weeks old when we got them... Is it normal for them to sleep standing up???? They all stand around, some lean on each other, then nod-off...often falling over or slowly sinking down to sleep. Just seems so odd!? (If you put your hand in their box, they all run up to climb on and fall asleep while you hold them!) Thanx All!
