My white Wyandotte banty chicks are 1 1/2 weeks old now. They came in a shipment with Buff Brahma bantys, and I was surprised at how little the Wyandottes are in comparison. They're also incredibly docile -- to the point that I'm a little worried about them! They seem to be eating and drinking just fine. I have a couple of pasty butts, but that seems to be clearing up too. The Brahmas are fiesty little ones, and I put them in the big brooder with the others (1 week older) right away. The Wyandottes seemed so dainty that I've kept them in a separate brooder, along with 2 2 1/2 week old D'uccles. They are nervous when I put my hand in the brooder tub, which I would expect, but when I pick them up and hold them they don't struggle at all -- they just sit there. Is this normal? Should I be worried? They do sleep an awful lot, but they are still pretty new. I've had some trouble getting the brooder to the right temp., but I think it's okay now. Is this breed just super laid-back? Heck, I thought silkies were supposed to be docile, but they're spitfires compared to these little ones. I had planned to put them in the big brooder in another week or so, but now I'm afraid they'll get bullied by the other chicks.
