    I got a call from a teacher I know last week. She was raising chicks in her class but needed a home for them once school got out. Of course I said yes! She just brought them out. They are three and a half weeks old and ridiculously adorable. They're so tiny compared to the big girls! Blossom, Bubbles, Buttercup and Franco (who is a girl). This may be a silly question, but do I need to do anything to keep their feet fluff clean? I know long haired cats and rabbits need grooming, and even my long haired hamster would need stuff picked out of his fur. Just wondering. Here they are:

    Big size different between Franco (the biggest) and Blossom (the tiny girl)

    AWWWAA. such cute chickies. as far as the feet.... I just keep their beading clean as possible. I don't think you need to groom them. Oh some times I do wash their feet if they get mucky. [​IMG]
