Well, our new little girls turned out to be 2 roosters and 2 hens. They are 8 weeks old and the little Roo's are practicing their crows. We needed to segregate them from all the Big Girls, as they are still eating the baby food. So using what we had, we converted an old dog house and some fencing into a little yard just for them. Now they can become adjusted to seeing and hearing the other big chickens, until they grow a little more. This is our first experience with roosters! We pulled up lawn chairs to watch for awhile, as the new babies got their first look at grass, dirt, and the big sky, along with watching other chickens run by. A whole new world has opened up!
