Hi everyone, we took the kids and had a family night out and picked up our chicks. My son got 6 straight run chicks 3 yellow and 3 black and white. No RIR so he was upset. But I took him the next morning to another store and they had them so we got two and they were pullets so YEAH!!!! Also ended up with two ducks. The first night went well though I didn't sleep for checking on them all the time. So gald I read the brooder thread here as we had everything we needed and it was a snap. Everyone is growing and happy. The two RIR must be a couple days older then the rest. Can't wait to fiqure out what the others are. I did take pics and will post later today. I had one chick with a dirty bum, but I cleaned it up yesterday and it seems fine. The ducks and chicks got to go outside in the yard yesterday and loved it. Not too long though as the wind was blowing. Ducks love the water and swimming. Now to get busy building the ducks a house and yard before they grow out of thier brooder. I can't believe how fast they are growing. Even the chicks. I will post pics soon.
