In the Brooder
- Jun 8, 2020
I bought these chicks a week ago from Craigslist with the understanding that they were 2.5 week old BLRW chicks. I was trying to add to the three 3.5 week old chicks that I already had. The new ones are 1/3 the size of my others. And dramatically different sizes from each other and 2 with bald bums. They honestly were/are pretty sad looking. I didn’t have the heart to pull out of the deal and thought I could just get them healthy. In a week, not much has changed. Feather development super slow and feathers look wacky. But I am new at this. Anybody have any opinions on these now supposedly 3.5 week old birds? While not the hardiest chicks, they do seem to eat/drink/poop fine. The bigger girls want nothing to do with them.
