I am sooo excited!!!!Two Jersey Giants and two Columbian Wyandottes; these are my first chicks ever! I pick up three Dominiques next Monday. Now for some questions, the first of MANY I am sure!! How do I know that they are drinking enough? I dipped each chick's beak in the water as I put it in the brooder, but they mostly seem interested in eating. And if they are chirping quietly does that mean they are content? They are moving about, pecking and chirping/cheeping. I think I know the "unhappy / distressed" cheep, I think one of them did it on the way home, very loud!
