Easter Egger Chick!
Buff Orpington Chick!
My chicks are about 5 weeks old. All are doing really well, all 8 that I bought are alive. Now the Buff Orpington Chick in the picture is a little smaller than the rest because she almost died at Day 5. She I thought was dead when I found her but I rubbed her and blew in her beak and she started moving again. Now here she is at 5 weeks old. My question is, She looks about a week behind the rest as far as growing, is this something to be concerned about? Also has far as the heat lamp I have raised it up, when do I remove the heat? Week 10? By the way the Buff Orpington Chick that nearly died I am naming "Angel" because I think it is a gift from God that she is still here and alive!
