    6 new barred rock babies that i got on saturday , id guess 2-3 weeks old. They were the last remaining barred rock, feathers everywhere but their heads. Not sexed, so hopefully not too many roosters, but we shall see.

    I underestimated their pooping and how much they eat! I fill up their jar with food and clean and fill their water 2 times a day and clean their lil brooder once a day, could do that twice too!
    Theyre getting really friendly and already like being held, my fiance is in love and once these little giys get big enough for theyre pin inside the coop we will be getting a few more chicks and some ducks!

    Wonderful... they look like they are getting amazing care! I have three ducks and agree that they are great fun. Happy feather-babies!
