Hi ya'll. I got my baby chicks last week. Meet my (2) Golden and (2) Sliver Wyandottes, and the youngest, a Speckled Sussex I call Baby. She's the one staring up at the camera. It took me half a day to get her to drink. I dipped her beak in water, but that didn't work, so I finally removed her from the brooder and took a wet pine shaving and dabbed it on her beak then set her down and tapped at the water, and finally after several attempts, she was drinking on her own. Baby is the only one who doesn't freak out when I pick her up. When I call her name, she looks up at me, and she is the most curious and least intimidated by new things. The other day I offered them some mealworms and Baby didn't hesitate to snatch it up. One Wyandotte wouldn't have anything at all to do with the mealworms even after the other birds were playing tug o' war and keep away with them. I haven't named the Wyandottes yet. I'm just now beginning to easily tell them apart.
