    Congratulations. I have been pointing out to several people that you should put marbles or small rocks in the base of your waterer for about the first week. If the chicks fall asleep while they are drinking they can drown. The rocks or marbles prevent their head from going underwater.

    I agree. They are precious. I love to watch chicks grow. That's probably why I became a hatch-a-holic. [​IMG]

    Thanks y'all. I have two girls, too. One is only 2 and the other is trying to put aside her fear of the chicks! She is making good progress now! [​IMG]
