I thought I'd share a few photos of my new, first ever chicks! I am new to chicken keeping, though I've kept companion parrots for about 24 years. I am so excited to have chickens finally, after years of research, saving and waiting! They came yesterday, ordered from Meyer. They are supposed to be all pullets. 3 days old! These photos aren't the best. I didn't want to stress the chicks so I took quick snapshots with not-so-good lighting! The Partridge Cochin, she is such a butterball! I adore her. That butt! Partridge Rock Golden Buff (golden comet, red star, etc etc) Black Australorp Barred Rock #1. She is extremely friendly and will already hop into our hands. Barred Rock #2 Salmon Faverolles #1 .. She is the most rowdy and crazy of the lot! Salmon Faverolles #1 again... she is a ham. Salmon Faverolles #2.. we are worried about her. She seems healthy; no signs of illness, but she refuses to eat or drink on her own. When I offer her food and water at the end of an eyedropper she eats vigerously. I'm hoping she grows out of it. I dip her beak and target the food for her to help her learn every few hours but she doesn't 'get' it (yet). Everyone except SF#2 is in great vigor and none are scared of us. This has made targeting food items very easy (all I have to do is 'peck' with a finger and they come boiling over). I adore these chicks! Thanks for looking!
