My chicks are getting so big now! They are going on 6 weeks old.
Although I know hardly anything about chickens, I am starting to worry that I have at least 2, maybe 3 roosters on my hands. What do you all think? I keep hoping that maybe it's just because they are a different type, but they are also my most aggressive. I cannot even get their food pail out of the pen sometimes because these 2 stand on top of it daring me to get it.
I let them out every morning and evening as I work on my garden and greenhouse and they are so nosy. They follow me around everywhere and it is just too funny. My husband laughs and teases me about it, but then the other day when he came home from work, they ran right up to him like they were saying Daddy's home! So he can't tease me anymore.
Here I had sat down on a 4-wheeler trailer to take a little break and they all hopped right up there with me. It's like they don't like me out of their site. I really don't like them out of mine either. We have seen wild cats just sitting there watching them, but you can tell they won't do anything while we are out there. Does anyone leave their chickens out when they get bigger? I wonder if cats or dogs will get after them bad when they are bigger? So much to learn.
