    I have 2 chick from someone who has no info on them. One has scissor beak and what I think could be wry neck. She is about 1/2 the size of the one she care with. And seems to need ‘mom’ more. I put her in my bag so she can feel as though she is being sat on by mom. The other chick is with...

    Hi, I'm new

    I"m Hannan, and a couple weeks ago, my family bought six new chicks, three black sex links (mine to care for) and three yellow chicks that I forgot which species they are, but my sister, who's in charge of those, probably remembers. They're all hens, because we don't have a large enough estate...
