    They need 100 degrees at first, just like any other chick.

    They may be more susceptable to breezes or cold snaps, since their feathers are different. BUT- if you brood them with all the other bantams, they should be fine.

    Long time no post... Wondered if anyone here has bees and is willing to sell me some wax? I have a project up my sleeves...

    Since I haven't checked in since I had the baby, I should let you know that mister Hartley Danger was born on August 13. Little booger wasn't so little... 9 lbs 8 oz and 22 inches of amazing.

    Quote:Cool, I will have to look into that. I bought some Purina in Prescott awhile back but I am thinking the calcium was lower....grr can't remember now. Tomorrow I am going to the other feed store and trying their Kruse brand. I want to see how that compares to what I am getting from DD.

    If it's not the organic it's not so good. I bought some and it had a lot of ashes in it. Chickens did not like it and egg production went down too. I never tried the organic but some people like it.

    Quote:Nope, same temperatures. IMO, silkie feathers tend to be better insulators than regular feathers...unless they are wet, in which case they do nothing. I always keep chicks inside for the first few weeks (unless they have a mama hen). During the summer I would usually remove the heat lamp after the first week or week and a half. We keep the house at the high 70s in the summer. Anyways, I adjust temperature by ear (or rather by chick behavior), and usually don't actually measure the brooder temp.

    I have a beautiful White/Black Americauna Rooster who needs a home where he won't meet the skillet or oven:)
    We are in New River and would like to send him to a home where we could visit on occasion. He's lap-trained and hand-raised.

    Picture available on request.

    Crockett Honey in Tempe sells wax if you can't find any other. It's $5 lb/unfiltered, $5.50/filtered. I always buy some to make my hard lotion when I go in to get my honey from them.
