Congratulation to you with the newborn chickens! Btw, how much time do you spend to bring them to this?

Thanks John123john - and welcome to OLS.

Those chicks that started this thread in 2006 have all gone to the great coop in the sky.

I don't do chicks anymore . It takes about 6 -8 months of care to get them to where they will lay eggs.

These days I just get juveniles (4-months or older).

It's looking like 2 weeks from now might work out. The Barn had large breeds last month, then they got some Araucanas (rumpless birds that lay blue eggs, but only lay about 3 a week).

They're about sold out of those and next time they will get good layers.

I want to increase the flock while they are still out and running about. Integration works much better when they have lots of room. Come Nov 1, they will all be penned in the back pen, which is 1/3rd the back yard.
