hi there. ok we had chickens when i was little but now memory fails me...we just got 6 loverly little balls of fluff from my sons class at school. 4 are doing great, 2 are a little lethargic, they are smaller and different in colouring, actually they look exactly like the picture of the chicks in the raising chicks 101 section of the site. (greyish with dark brown markings on their heads and backs) well what i am worried about is their leg strength, they botth seem to have one foot that the toes stay curled and reaaly don't walk about like the other four it is more of a stumble. they are mind you a day younger. i have them in a seperate box inside the main box with their own food and water though we had to show them where the water was by dipping thier beaks in it they don't seem to go to it by themselves but i am also wondering how i can tell what breed they are? the oder stronger chicks .. lets see two are solid in colour one being yellow the other a caramel colour.. 2 have slight markings , a darker strip down thier backs or just on the head , and the little ones i already described. the teacher didn't know he gets them from a friend for a class project, the eggs were brown and some were greenish blue any way any tips and tidbits are greatly welcomed cause i am very new to this game!
