    A lot of websites suggest GroGel for baby chicks and I was wondering if anyone had details or advice about giving it to chicks?

    I gave it to my new chicks that I picked up from the feed store(wyandottes) and the just pecked at it a little. It's only good for 6 hours after mixing it with water. I only gave it to it them that one time, so don't know it it helped or not.

    Only what I have read...that they are good layers, cold hardy and pretty docile. But they sure are cute! About a week and a half old and just starting to get tail feathers - mixed with down they are a hoot.

    I know that's what attracted me to them! they sound great. But I want to know what books can't tell me, stories from other chicken owners experience, So, I can raise them the best way I can! [​IMG][​IMG]
