Good Afternoon. My wife and I just picked up our first ever batch of chicks from the post office a few hours ago. We ordered 3 black australorp, 3 buff orpington, 5 splash silkie, and 5 white silkie from Cackle Hatchery. They were all alive and looked pretty good when I got them from the post office. They were shipped yesterday morning and arrived today around noon, so thankfully they weren't in transit too long and they have warm weather here in NC. Additionally, they sent 4 extra silkies. We have a nice area set up from them and are using the heating pad system. We dipped their beaks in the water source upon arrival, as instructed. They seem to be eating well, drinking well, and crawling in and out from the heating pad. I had to head back to work after getting them situated, but my wife is keeping an eye on them for the rest of the day. She has noticed that the white silkies enjoy putting a foot in the water and will walk around with it in there. Besides getting the water dirty and having to clean it out, is there a reason for this behavior. Is this something we need to worry about? It looks funny and they seem happy, but we are fairly uneducated since we are new to this. I did not see anything about this in the couple books I've read about raising chicks, so wanted to be safe and ask. I have a picture, but am unable to share it at my current location.
