    We have 10 2 week old Lavender Orpington chicks! They are [​IMG][/IMG]doing great so far... Had a little scare with one. She kept her one eye closed for 2 days. I continued to give probiotics together with electrolytes (powder form). And today, 5 days later, I'm having trouble making out that chick from the others. [​IMG][​IMG] My husband is an eye doctor and he had me also put saline drops ( BioTrue) in her eye a couple times a day and whala!! [​IMG] I'm so thankful she survived. Anyways, glad to be a newbie here. I've wanted Lavenders for quite some time now. [​IMG]

    Thank you for all the kind welcomes!! I will take more pics tomorrow and post them. They are all doing really well and growing. They are so cute, especially when they are sleeping and have their necks out. [​IMG][​IMG]

    Today they are 19 days old. When can they be sexed? I paid for 2 males and 8 females but I'm thinking I might have been given 4 males. I don't however know for sure yet. If so anyone want to trade 2 Lavender males for Orpington females (any kind)? [​IMG][​IMG]
