Ok I have a few questions ill list them with numbers to make it easer . 1. I have a barred rock chick thats just about 5 weeks old his/her comb is a tad taller and is starting to turn a deeper reddish color at the base instead of the yellowish orangish color it use to be and that the others still are. I only have the one barred rock the others with combs are RIR. Is this a breed diffrence or what? 2. It just hit me that everyone talks about chicks being ready to go outside when all there feathers grow in , mine are about 4/5ths the way there I would say but what about my silkie as she grows she replaces fuzz with fuzz and only has a few stragley feathers on her wings..can silkies be out side and when ? 3. My silkie dosnt have a comb like the other chickies is this normal? 4. Whats the best thing to get that horrible brown poop stain out of carpet I have been letting the chickes out of there box 2 times a day for about 30 minutes to free range the bed room, and they all usually poop twice .
