I haven't been on often. I was 3 years ago when I first got my ducks. I had 5, but lost one over the winter to illness.
Yesterday, hubby and I decided to get some chicks. We were at TSC picking up duck supplies and, of course, it's "Chick Days". Last year, we talked about getting chickens. But, chick days were over and we didn't feel like ordering from a hatchery at that point. So, yesterday we picked up a half dozen of ISA Browns (sexed). We got down the road and one of them was dying already. So, we turned around and went back. They took back the sickly one and gave us another, more hearty looking one. But, we lost another one last night. So, we have 5 who look pretty happy and healthy, running around in their brooder.
Does anyone know how old they might be? They have, maybe 1/2" of wing feathers, at most; almost none, at least. What are they 1-3 days old or so??
