In the Brooder
- May 13, 2015
We have 6 baby bantams---4 silkies and 2 speckled sussux. The Silkie's joined us last weekend and three of the four are doing well---they are growing, active, etc. One seems to be a "runt" (do you use that term with chickens?). It is definitely smaller. I do see it eat, not as much as the others. We have had a little bit of pasty butt, but he looks OK back there (we have added probiotics to the water). Anything extra we can be doing to help aid this little one along?
