After a year of research we brought home 5 chicks yesterday. I am freaking out! I am so worried I am doing something wrong and they are all going to die. So far they seem fine, I am worried about two of their butts - I cleaned one off tonight and it seemed fine but the other one has like a black seed that seems to be under her skin - not like a piece of poop attached. I watched both of them poop - that's good right? They all seem happy, eating, drinking, pooping!
When I bought them from the feed store they sold me the starter feed but they told me that they reccomend scratch to go with it. I bought it as they recommended but I realized I have no idea how much to give them = what ratio to mix it with the feed? I can't find anything online - can anyone help?
nervous new chick mommy
