The baby chicks have been in with the big chickens, but in their own wee house for almost 2 weeks now, so this morning I let them out and stood over them like a hawk to make sure they were ok. After about half an hour and lots of contact with the big chooks but no pecking I felt it was safe to leave them and just check on them numerous times today! They are absolutely loving being out and about - they're very game wee things, tough as old boots.
I am now totally convinced both the light sussex are boys ( black and white ones) and that the pure white wyandotte is also a boy. However can anyone sex Araucanas??
Haven't they grown.
