    the black one is Willow, and the white/yellow one is Saffron

    Does anyone have any tips for helping me raise them? they already are pretty friendly and i have them on chick starter with grit and with hay bedding [​IMG] but i haven't seen them interested in thier water... i've even tried dipping their beaks in, but they aren't interested

    They're adorable!

    My Delawares only seem to drink at certain times of day. My husband was worried they weren't drinking, but I saw them drinking before he got home. I have paper towels down in our brooder, so it's easy to see they are peeing fine. Can you tell if yours are tinkling as well as pooping?
