I just got some new chicks yesterday . this is my very first time raising any, but they seem to have survived their first night ok. I got up to check on them at least 6-7 times during the night. (Making sure they weren't too cold, too warm, etc.) I swear it looks as if they are nearly doubled in size already ! Is that possible? And they look like they are starting to get real feathers too! I don't know what kind they are yet, I guess I will have to wait until they grow up to know for sure.
