An oddity-I noticed yesterday that one of my new chicks (3 days old) was picking up bits of food and chirping much like a rooster does when calling hens to come for a found tidbit. I have seen the chick do this many times. I have never seen this behavior in a tiny chick before. Has anyone else? A rooster?
This is a picture of Tiny Tim. I thought he was 4 days old, but after looking at the calendar, he is 6 days old; time flies by too fast.
17 grams while most of his siblings are between 25-30 grams. I do hope this one is a rooster-all of my roosters are too large for what I want. Tiny has one sibling that is 1 gram more in size. My wife named that one Teeny.
