I just got my first chicks yesterday. They're two weeks old. Two silkies and 3 are salmon faverolls, though one of the salmon faverolls looks very different so I'm wondering about it! I only plan to keep two, I picked up the others for friends because everyone has told me they are looking for them too. They have not slept much! They have been EATING all night! and stretching and playing and cleaning themselves..one of them has a mild conjunctivitis in one eye..i tried to check them over when i got them but it was so chaotic i missed it..trying not to freak out..could be lots of easy to solve causes..rinsed it with saline solution and thinking about putting fresh aloe on it..will call the shop about it in the morning.. I would like to have the confidence to deal with this myself in the future so now is a good time as any to start learning chicken medicine..no one is picking on him and they've been together in a little pen there at the shop I got them from for two weeks so not sure any point in separating them now tonight when they just had a rough day..though they don't seem worn out! I had no idea they slept so little and ate so much! I hope they are getting enough water..i read they're supposed to get four time more water than food and they are NOT, though they are drinking quite a bit, they are most certainly eating much more than they are drinking..omg they have to have eaten their own weights in food in the last 12 hours? I'm going to make them scrambled eggs for breakfast, those are moist..can i moisten their feed with water to make sure they are drinking enough? Worried that might cause bathroom issues or respiratory issues or something.. I read I can give them a sand box right now at two weeks, to play in, will that be ok for me to do with sand from my yard? Can I give them sticks, green grasses and dried leaves from the yard or will they eat them and choke or get sick from the germs? Also can anyone tell me, I read I am supposed to wipe them down the first 4 days, especially their fannies, with a warm cloth. Is it ok i I do this? I don't want them to get too cold but i think I can dry them with a dry towel and put them back in the warmth pretty quick..ive got their temp at 90 degrees but i could make it a little warmer while they dry ..Thank you! So tired but so excited! <3 omg..they just ate all their food again! wtf its the middle of the night and theyre binge eating all night..is this ok?
