Welcome to my world. LOL I think you're spoiled with those chicks that are sexable at hatch!
Oh Tilly, so sorry. I'm glad she has you to care for her.
I had a singleton chick hatch this weekend. I sent her to a different farm that had a recent hatch so she wouldn't be alone, unfortunately, she wasn't accepted by the chicks at this other farm and is badly injured. They pretty much scalped her. She is now back on my counter top, she has a few stuffed animal friends, and doesn't seem very interested in eating or drinking. I dip her beak every time I pass that way. Poor little thing. She was peeping her head off last night after I picked her up, this morning she's not as vocal. I can't figure out if that's a good thing or not. Sometimes I think, 'oh good, she's settled', and then I think, 'oh no, she's dying.'
Oh no! Poor little thing! Hope she pulls through for you
@TillyPeeps I hope everything works out and she's just fine.
So, hubby may kill me tomorrow....he didn't mind last week when I picked up 6 chicks at TSC since my daughter was in love with one of them but I have no excuse today. A guy, in the next town over (10 minutes away) had bantam polish chicks for $2.50. I couldn't resist and picked up two lol
Cream Crested Legbars, BCM, Rhodebars, bearded silkies, good laced/buff laced polish, black/lavender ameraucanas
Bourbon red, red bronze, royal palm, mottled black
I also make hen saddles, PM me for details!
