Thank you for the worm explanation.  I will keep a look out for them and take your advice if I observe any.  It was 90 something yesterday in PA and same for today, so I'm so glad something tugged at me yesterday to get those chicks or they would not be alive.    Our local shelters are filled with "Easter Bunnies" as well along with all the dogs, cats, pot bellied pigs,the list goes on.
