First Serama chicks from my Crele roo and his 2 girls!!

Discussion in 'Raising Baby Chicks' started by Dipsy Doodle Doo, Jan 17, 2008.

  1. *shrug* They just look like little mongrel chicks to me.
    They are tiny and hatched well --- popped out like fleas jumping all over the place (reminded me of spastic Button Quail hatchlings).


    Here are their parents:

    I've never heard that they were hard to raise. Mine are just like any other chicks, just smaller.

    You can't quite follow the "5 degree a week" temp plan though.

    I don't know if I'll ever get them out of the brooder.
  8. I hadn't really looked at the calender, but they started hatching on Day 18 and were all out (100% hatch) by early Day 19 (I thought I was late moving the eggs to the hatcher, but not so by the calender).

    What is the 5 degree a week plan? You mean brooder temps?

    Lol, my Hubby just came out of the br wanting to know (jokingly), would I "please DO something with the chicks hatching right now, they're noisy".
    My dog is on chick alert beside the incubator and every time a chick 'pops out' and does its' just-out-of-the-shell cheepcheeping, she runs from the br to the lr to tell me. Seriously, until I just closed the door. She knows the difference in chick in distress (she is a chicken-dog) and chick hatching sounds.

  10. LOL, Darby is an exceptional dog, a Border Collie mix mutt with no herd to tend --- just her chicken flocks.
    She is just a bit obsessive (gee, where'd she pick up that ) , but that has been good so far. Darby loves all her chickens ---from pipping eggs to the layers.
