Chicks ahoy! + a little advice?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello! The other day I got 2 Silkie chicks, pictures below! ☺️

Aren't they just gorgeous!? Ugh- I'm in love already. Anyway, onto what I need help with.

I was hoping you smart chicken pros out there could help answer these:

1. Is the brownish chick (Bella) a partridge silky?

2. What colour will the creamish white chick turn out to be?

3. They are two weeks old, should I be giving them a constant supply of food Or just a select ammount occasionally?

4. From the photo above and the other photos down below, do they look to be show worthy? I'm unsure wether you can tell when there chicks but I thought it would be fun to go to some local shows with them when their older. smile.png

5. I have a photo of their brooder box as well in the photos below, how does it look? It's floored with dirt and leaf litter for them to scratch around and dust bath in- they seem to love it! smile.png

-sorry for all the questions, but this is my first time with chicks! smile.png-

And god said, "Let there be poultry!" and thus, the obsession began.

The little chick in my avatar was a partridge silky if that helps.

You will need to wait till they have grown up to see if they are show worthy, but if the parents weren't I would guess they may not be either?

I keep food on demand.

They are very cute :-)
