Pros: Intelligent, precocious, tiny!
Cons: May need extra care as babies, good flyers
I got my chicks as 2-day-olds from a breeder. Beyond being sure the crumbles were ground a little finer for a week, they didn't need any special care. Right now they're almost a month old. They've been flying out of their tote for a good 10 days now. The tote is in my garden tub so they fly BACK into it to eat & sleep. They seem much smarter than the other Bantams/Silkies I have. They like to roost on the edge of the tote. They 'talk' to me every time I'm in the bathroom and don't seem to be fazed at all by my Toy Poodle, who is *fascinated* with them!!
