They are beautiful! Like a Whitman's sampler.
Why the marbles in the water dish?
So I'll know what to do next time.
3goodeggs, the marbles are to prevent accidental drownings while the chicks are small.
They are so cute fuzzy butts!
Lucky you - thanks for posting! Happiness is a box of healthy chicks!
What kind are they?
I can tell there is more than one.

Adorable!! Congratulations to you! Hmmm...I see 4 white patches on 4 little black heads. What else besides barred rocks have that? Or did you end up w/more than 3 of them???
Quote:The chicks will often just fall asleep standing right in front of the waterer and can drown if there isn't something for their sleepy little heads to rest on.
I love the assortment. Hopefully I will have a successful hatch with lots of colors.
