I want to post pics, but I have to move the broody silkie to even see my new chickie babies. I am new to this (and she is, too, it's our first hatch!) so I don't know if moving her off the nest now is such a good idea???
Here they are, having their first bits of feed. Before they discovered the feed, they all discovered the water & took turns sticking their beaks in and sneezing out water. Mommy (the silkie) showed them how it was done, but all they seemed to want to do was peck at the marbles in the waterer. They took to food right away, though, like old pros
Pardon my lack of photography talent. My cheap camera doesn't help.
