Hippie Chicks

I posted yesterday about the ducklings, well today we got our chicks! We have 6 Barred rocks, only 2 days old.  Judging from the information I found at Backyard Chickens they are 2 cockerels and 4 pullets. We had planned to keep them in the brooder with the ducklings, but the ducklings are bullies and they had to be separated.  Click the link below for a video of the new flock, and if you missed it, click the link in the above post for Ducky bath time.  I will post pics later, but right now can only find the video camera!
Soon we will start construction on the "chicken tractor", so check back!

They're adorable! It's funny to me to think of the ducks being bullies. LOL
