We got these chicks at 2 weeks old, they are VERY jumpy. I think we would choose to get “just hatched chicks” who where more comfortable with us. We had to clean out the brooder today and they were put in an old gardening tub.
They were still freaking out once back in the brooder.
The big hens have lost feathers, and we treated for mites or bugs. There is one hen that hasn’t lost any feathers in the back, she might be a feather plucker. They got some plain yogart today.
