    Last night I brought home 4 little banty cochins and two other little bantys.
    they did alot of sleeping at first and just getting used to thier new brooder - but they are awake today - running all over the brooder , jumping, running around in thier food, I changed thier water and fisrt thing they did was jump in the water and make a mess -- are these chicks or ducks LOL.

    they run around for a few minutes and than all of sudden they strecth out thier legs and fall over [​IMG] first couple of times they did this I thought they died [​IMG] these little buggers are so funny to watch while they are sleeping they pile up on each other and all of sudden without warning one of them will jump in its sleep and make all the others jump LOL

    every once in awhile one will fall asleep standing up and do this rocking back and forth thing until it finally just falls over.

    I love having babies in the house again - its been a year since we have had little fuzzybutts [​IMG]

    Oh they are sooo cute and small, how old are they?

    What kinds did you get? From where?

    Do they have TSC in Clovis?
    My step kids are living in Tucumcari and we've been traveling back and forth from San Antonio for months now.

    It's fun, but it's tiring, we were thinking maybe next time we could go to Clovis to check it out.

    Tucumcari is just soo small.

    well they were marked assorted bantams - I know that 4 of them are cochins of some kind and the two little "skunks" as DH calls them might be silverduckwing oegb ??

    I am not sure how old they are - they still have thier egg tooth -and I am not sure when that falls off.

    we got a brand new TS in november - and I have already spent a fortune there - and they are getting more babies weds [​IMG]

    You are lucky, the closest TSC to me is an hour away. Not only that, I don't think they will be getting chicks anymore. [​IMG]

    I have to admit the one looking right at the camera - is my favorite one ! of course I bet it will be a rooster with my luck LOL
    I think the two little browns one we are calling Gordon and Earnhardt - until we find out if they are pullets are not !!
    I want to give them all names but since I dont know which ones are roos or not I cant [​IMG]

    at this age what treats can they have if any??
