    It's amazing how those little fuzzy butts just love to sit and poop in their grower feed.

    Cute chicks... and I know it's expensive, but paper towel is better for the brooder... it's what I use for the first 3 or 4 weeks and add pine shavings as they get older.

    They are ADORABLE!! I would worry if they were dead all the time. How do you not panic and go crazy? I would....

    I dont know, I read about how they will fall asleep suddenly and you will think the pass away but I haven't worried about it. I am just so glad that they had a good hatch.
