I got some chicks from a friend yesterday. The chicks are bantam D'anvers and they are just about 6 weeks old. I raised day old chicks this past spring and I recall we were just about ready to put the birds outside at 6 weeks. These chicks are still very small and don't look nearly ready to move outside! I didn't ask what he was feeding them, he was letting the mother raise them. I noticed a few of his adult birds had scaly leg mites and some were missing feathers, so there could be some other parasites going on there. I gave them some scrambled eggs and have them on unmedicated chick starter. I added some electrolytes to their water but I don't seem them drinking it too much. It gets dirty pretty quick so I just end up dumping that maybe 2-3 times a day. Your thoughts? Should I worm them? sprinkle them with some sevin dust? They are pooping normally and are peeping and fairly active. Thanks for your help.
