I just bought two appenzeller spitzhauben chicks from a local breeder and was told they are 3-4 days old (sunday). They seem to be doing fine, but when I pick them up their crops are always empty. I've seen them peck around a bit and drink water, but not actually eat. I can tell where they've been scratching around in their food bowl, but I don't know why they are always empty. Otherwise they are happy and active. My brooder is actually an unused dog kennel stall that's about 4x4 ft. I've raised all my chicks in it with pretty good success, but these guys don't have anybody to "show them the ropes" cuz they're so little. The bottom is covered in pine shavings except where the food is it's kinda bare floor with the food on the floor and their dishes.. Are they eating?
