    I have 4 babys
    One is maybe 4 weeks, 2 are 3 weeks and 1 is 2 weeks
    When I got all of them they told me they were between 3-5 days.. They are all different sizes:/ 2 are black sextons?!!? 2 are RIR's..
    They still have a lot more fuzz then feathers. They are living in a large dog kennel in the house with a heat lamp. I haven't let them out by themselves at all. I give them about a half an hour, I worry about others looking for a snack.. I don't want to do anything wrong, any help would be appreciated..

    Welcome to the board!
    It sounds like you are doing everything pretty well, so you can relax, or at least try to [​IMG]
    When you say "I give them about half an hour", I assume you mean outside, and not to live?

    What part of Northern Ca are you in? I'm in Sacramento!!!!

    Is this your first time with chicks? I just got my first ones a couple weeks ago. You will need to keep them inside for a while longer.

    What questions do you have?
