Since it's cold out at night, I'm not sure I'd trust their mother to keep them warm.
I would suggest raising the chicks yourself. She didn't want to sit on the eggs, so she must not be very broody. She might not care to keep them...
So, I took them all out at once for playtime on my bed and they all wanted to pile on me :) Morty wasn't afraid at all
I tend to hold them at least two at a time. They like to snuggle up under my hair like my hair is a momma chicken :)
I always sing to them when I hold them. What should I do inside the brooder to get her used to me? The others don't mind me
I'll definitely be giving them treats from now on :D
Okay, good! That's what I've been doing
They have lots of space. Their brooder is a 4'x2' stock tank and there are only 6 chicks. They roam the entire tank, so temperature should be...
Thank you so much. I've been checking her little butt a lot. None of the other chicks are having trouble with pasty butt or shyness.
Welcome to BYC!:celebrate
It's so nice to meet you. I live in TN but grew up in PA! I miss the snow.
Good luck with your lovely chicken family :)
I am extremely new to this, and my smallest chick has pasty butt. She's a very nervous little baby and so afraid of being picked up.
Welcome to BackYardChickens!!!
I'm new as well, and it's wonderful here.
Thank you! I feel very welcome here :D
You are so helpful!! Thank you so very much. Morty also unfortunately has a case of the pasty butt :hitI am so worried about him. I cleaned him up...
Thank you so much :) I definitely am!
I'm incredibly jealous :love
