  1. [​IMG]Well I got my chicks today... wife was a lil hestiant til she wiped poop of her but all crusted up... and that was the end of it... I missed out on the Areuricanas , I wanted a green layer, but I'll find one... I did get 2 RIR and a Barred Rock. The RIR are a week older, but they seem to get along fine, no fighting or nothing. It is funny when a moth or bug flies under the light, they go nuts... It's the crazyiest ting I've seen. They seem healthy and happy, so all is good. They will sit in my hand for a lil before jumping off. I'm sure I will have plenty of Questions, but I got medicated chick feed, and a 3 pack deal of save a chick, Should I give this to them if there doin well, I guess I should it's vitamins , but I'll check back in the morn before I do...
    In my rush to get home from work I forget to get shavings, but they seem just fine in dried grass from the top of the compost pile. I'll post an update tomorrow... All is well in Orlando...

    Aww congrats! They're cute:) The sav-a-chick, I would follow the directions on the pack but yea you could mix it with their water if you want. They will do great on whatever bedding you put down for them so thats really up to you.
  3. Thats good to hear... Lots O pine needles around this time of year...
