    I ordered week old chicks from a local hatchery because I would rather pay more so I wouldn't have to have that week of stress my first time raising chicks.

    So, we are waiting for the order to be ready and I am getting nervous that we will do something wrong, like they won't be warm enough at night in the shed with a light, or they will get overheated and 'paste up' or something.

    So, I went to the feed store and got some day olds cause they are cheaper, and I can see if we are going to be ok when we get the week olds.

    Now, why didn't I just get day olds to start with you ask. Well, cause I am obviously crazy!

    We got them on Friday and they have been doing just fine so far.
    But hey, at least I get a neat selection at the hatchery, lol. [​IMG]

    You're not crazy. We were all a little afraid we would do the lil fuzzy butts in the first time around. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Our paranoia leads us in all directions. Our obsession wins over in the end.
