    Hi Hi to you as well RoboDuck! You seem just Ducky tonight! I on the other hand have insomnia due to chick worry. Oh the first world issues of those new to chickens as a small hobby. (Silly me still believes we will stay small.... the silly land lord does too! LOL He did say I could have chickens....) Really though, if this chick dies tonight and we want a flock of 6.... do I try and find a 2 week old chick to add to the other 5 or will the reject a new comer?

    I don't think that is it at all! LOL I think most of us are just reading back posts trying to catch up. This forum moves fast!

    I doubt at that age they're going to do much rejecting. I think the biggest thing is accidental injury. They grow fast and a 2 or 3 week old chick is going to be much more active than a 1 or 2 day old. If I was going to add new chicks, I would get the same age just so they can hold their own or if I got younger ones, keep them separate until their physical abilities match those of the current residents.

    I currently have 3 baby chicks in the incubator - a crested cream legbar, a black/blue copper marans, and the bb copper/cuckoo marans. :-D

    Yes, he did! He took a while to figure out how to get out of the shell itself. Sat in it for quite some time. Now he's all over he place. LOL

    No, I was up and down all night checking on the babies. Started the coffee at 3am. At 1am German Shepard went off, let him out, what a good oppossum killer. Sorry to those that like them in advance..........
