    Quote:Nope they're just a chicken [​IMG] But most likely roosters so they might be loud [​IMG]

    Should I put Vitamins in Their Water? I'm Using Dunmore Chick Starter / Grower 20% With a 10% mix of Crushed granite Grit for chicks. I Don't see anything on the Bag that says Medicated.

    Congrats on healthy chicks!

    I think I will cry if I get Turkens as packing peanuts...nothing against those that love them, but they just give me the heebie jeebies *shudders* [​IMG]

    Rickel-I was told to put sugar in the water, sort of a boost I guess. I can't remember how much; probably 1/3-1/2 a cup to my gallon waterers. My chicks did fine with that.
