Hi, thank you in advance for taking the time to reply to my question, I am completely new to this! ...We will be getting some little bantam Orpington chicks in a few days time (4wks old). We’ve got a Eglu Cube and a 3m run but I’m just wondering what else is needed to keep our little feathered friends happy and what will help them to settle in well? I’m absolutely new to the world of chickens but so excited! ...I would be so grateful for your wisdom and tips on anything I need to be thinking about in order to be prepared to help our new pets settle into their new home. For example: Will 4wk old chicks be okay to go straight into cube (we live in Australia and it is summer). What do I feed 4 week old chicks? What type of bedding material is needed inside the cube? Thank you!
Help! I’ve had my quail for a little while! I’ve got 3 girls 1 male I went and brought two more girls this is there second day and the male is bullying them and won’t leave them alone he’s making them bleed with all the pecking! What can I do???
Hi, Please help! Got three ex batts yesterday, never kept chickens before. Within half an hour the largest chicken began bullying the other two, she’s constantly going for them and biting them hard. She won’t let them near the food, they’re scared to come out of their Eglu into the run. Any advice? Is this normal as we only got them yesterday so is it an expected part of establishing the pecking order, or should I intervene? Also, I found one trampled on egg this morning. How do you stop them from doing that? Any help would be so welcome, thanks. Katharine
