    This is Lexi at 3.5 weeks with the other blues.

    Yes, she looks like yours! I hope she's black since all the rest are blue.

    Wow! Mine will be 4 weeks Tuesday and they all look so much smaller than yours. You only have 1 chick or just 1 polish chick?

    Haha I have 14 chicks she's the only polish. Got a rare breed mix and she was one of only 4 survivors (other 3 i believe to be EEs. Got a second batch of brown layers -10 left from that. Not sure what most are!

    That's crazy! I have 3 red sex link 1 year old. And these 4 polish babies. I had six babies but 2 didn't make it. I raised my 3 girls without ANY issues. With this batch, I have had a really hard time. Heat Lamp bulb went out, pasty butt, temp problems. They are on tetracycline, electrolytes and vitamins now and they are all finally healthy and happy. I don't think I could handle all the babies you have!
