    So I dont have to get in a big bowl of dirt to teach them, whew, glad to hear that, I was just getting ready to get undressed LOL. Yeah, The silkie is named Tori, the polish is Matilda.

    Yeah, the little barr seemed like it was, and I know this isnt so but lack of better terms, a rut of the litter as apposed to the others. The two new little chicks seem to be doing great, as well as the old roo, their all getting kind of spoiled along with my other pets. I do have a question...

    Hi aaggjg (I now realize its not overrun lol), I'm not so sure I was meant to have chickens, I was ill prepared. Sadly the little barr became, lack for better terms lethargic, I called the guy I got them from and he had no idea as to why, said maybe she was stressed from being away from her...

    Little chick chirps alot

    I have the brooder set up so they can get under the light if their cold or away from it if their hot. But I just went up to the brooder and talked and chirp'd at them and she's quieted down, the little polish Loves to be held, the little silkie not so much. maybe she justs misses her mamma?

    Little chick chirps alot

    Hi from Ohio, I have two little chicks, I'm not sure how old they are but one ( a little polish) really doesn't have any chick fuzz and all feathers that walks around their brooder and makes a thrill sound every once in awhile. I figure that this is normal, however, the other is a little...

    Hi Overrun, I did do just that, I figured I'd get her a buddy. I went and got an easter egger, which I did'nt realize at the time is about three times the size of the silkie. I also got a little barred rock about the size of a softball that kept following me around and sitting on my foot, so I...

    Hey Ronaroonie, Yeah, I was a little harsh, and I do like BYC. I was just so desperate for some kind/ any kind of input as to what was happening I didnt know what to do. Twenty some pep's read the thread, yet nobody could say anything. I wrapped her in a light towel, tried to cleen her eyes...

    Hey Rickaroonie, Over run with chickens is right and take their advise, it's a respitory prob. In my case I belive it was infectious broncitis. I say was because the chick died this morning. Of course I found this out to late to do anything for the poor thing, surprizingly many pep's read my...

    I just got a young chicken/ pullet that was full of energy,(Thurs. night). Fri. I made a pen within the main pen outside with her in it so she could get use to the other two hens. After a day I let her lose with the two other hens I have and there seemed to be no problem. I put them in their...
