Hi there--We live in Alamo, CA and got our first chicks last weekend. We have a buff orpington, a rhode island red, a black orloff and a Ameraucana--they are so cute! So far so good in the brooder--just figured out this morning as they were kicking the shavings into their water that it was time to raise the water dishes. I read we are supposed to play with our chicks--and I don't really know how. when I put my hand into the brooder they run, and I don't want to harass them. I tried giving them one small spinach leaf last night and they went for it--but is it ik to give them anything other than their chick feed right now. Any other advice is sincerely appreciated!
