How old are they?
We are brand new to Chickens! (I've shown Cocker Spaniels for 20 years & also have 2 Collies) I brought home 6 Silkie chicks. I'm excited to see what colors they will be! Great forum! I want to take excellent care of this little flock!
they are 12 days old.
Is it normal for chicks to sleep with their necks stretched forward?
How cute, I love silkies, when I first started I got 5, one of them turned out to be a Sultan!
Good luck and happy chickening....
They'll sleep every which way. A lot of times they look like they're dead...until you see them breathing. It still gives me a mild heart attack when they do that.
I could be wrong because of the lighting, but it looks like you have one white and the rest are buff. I've got six white Silkie chicks myself...the TSC near me got a whole bunch in as their "bantam" assortment.
THANK YOU for your help!!
I am so excited to join you all soon! I get to pick up 4/6 of my chicks on the 31st pictures soon to come!
Well I fitted a 5 gallon bucket with four horizontal nipples for the 10 week olds today. It took them all of 20 seconds to figure them out! Yay for no more dirty water!
