with silkies! These little guys just arrived today and I thought I would share them with everyone. They are so tiny compared to my other babies. How could you not fall in love with that face?

Hey, very nice chicks but if you want to keep them alive....I'd get rid of those cedar shavings. Cedar lets of a toxic fume that can kill chicks.

OH my, I would put them on something different then cedar shavings. I think I read on here cedar is bad for them they will eat it.

But yes I love them too. My silkie went broddy again I can't wait to see those little faces. Your's are beautiful.

Thanks for the memo. Cedar is all that I have on hand at the moment. I have used it with my 3-4 week old's without any problems, but I think I would rather be safe than sorry with these guys. I just replaced it with some timothy hay for now until I can run into town tomorrow. They sure are louder than my other little ones. Chatty!

I know what you mean about them being loud but I think they think because they are so small they need to act big and make a lot of noise. LOL

I used cedar on all my batches last year with good results, I think it depends on the ventilation and if it gets wet.

I'm sure your new babies are ok, you are a good chicken mom for replacing it.
