Hi there! I "surprised" the hubs by buying 15 silkie chicks that will be here April 6th-ish. He wasn't thrilled at first but is now building me a coop. So excited!
[/IMG] My new first chicks ever came today we go 2 barred rocks 2 SLW 1 black Australorp and we think the chipmunk looking guy is a welsumer.
Good luck with your little silkie chicks, I positively love mine!
This is "Tillie" one of our new babies! Not quite sure of the breed but most of them look similar to her.
This is the first time for My Husband and I raising chic's. We have 7 full grown 1 rooster and 6 hens outside already. About 2 weeks ago we purchased 6 baby chic's from Tractor Supply. All is going great with them. I am really worried about when its time to put them outside with the others. Do I have to worry about the grown ones hurting my babies? Anyone who can help would be greatly appreciated.
I am a first timer too, so don't know much, but have read that by introducing a group of chicks (as opposed to just one), you are less likely to have problems. They'll have their own friends if the others shun them. Unless you have a naughty hen or rooster, they shouldn't hurt them.
Thank you! It is very nerve racking. LoL. Don't want anything to happen to these little babies. A lot of love and time spent with these cuties.
