    My seven Christmas 2020 chicks are almost 4 weeks old. Right now, a couple of them have pink feathers. PINK! That is so cool -- I can't wait to see real colors they develop into.

    Bantam Chicks

    Anyone know what breed and or gender these chicks are? I got them from rural king today. I got a silkie, and these three others. I didn't post a picture of the silkie. Any help would be greatly appreciated! I looked up the brownish colored ones and all I could find that kinda resembled them were...

    I bought my chicks when they were about 1 week old. It was my first time raising chicks so I wasn't sure what to feed them. I just bought them the big pellets. They started eating the big pellets since they were about 2 weeks old. Now they are about 2 months old. Recently, one of my chickens got...

    Long story... do you think this chick can make it?

    This baby chick hatched and after about 22-24 hours it still wasn’t dry. We did some googling and cleaned the sticky membrane off with a damp, warm paper towel and blow dried the chick until it was completely dry (it took about an hour to do). We put him with the other chicks in the brooder and...

    Hatching Time Brooder Questions

    Hey guys! We sell chicks locally and are currently brooding in tubs with thermostat controlled heat lamps. We do this in our unheated garage. We are looking to upgrade to a stackable brooder system. We’ve already decided against GQF as it states on their website they are meant for room temp...

    Can anyone help identify these bantams?

    Hi there. I've hatched bantam chicks from eggs from random breeds; could you help me identify them? I've included numbers to help, the picture on the left is when they were less than a week old and on the right at a month old. The black one has feathers that spread outwards. I am also unsure of...

    New to BYC, Question...

    Hi, I'm in Oregon, we are in the process of moving to a larger place with 0.75 acre, so of course we are getting chickens! Most of the varieties I want to get can be found locally. Murray McMurray has a variety that is Whiting True Blue and Whiting True Green. They sound like a cross breed...

    One chick smaller than the others

    I have 3 baby silkies that I hatched. They are about 2 and a half weeks old. One is growing rapidly, one is in the middle, and one honestly seems like a runt. The largest one was born a day before the other 2. The “runt” was the only one that hatched properly, the other 2 needed help. The weight...
