    Make sure they're warm, about 90-95 degrees to start. Also be sure to check their butts and clean off any poo that blocks them up. The threat of a blockage only last for the first week or so. You also need to be sure to use a waterer designed for chicks as they can drown in the larger ones.

    Congrats! I'm still pretty new to chicks, but with my latest experience with my chicks I'd recommend you get another chick or 2 to add to the brooder in case you lose one. I got 2 silkies and lost one at 11 days old, so I had to put one of my Delaware chicks in with my lone silkie so she'd stop peeping her head off and start eating and drinking. I don't want to imagine what would have happened if I didn't have another chick to put in with her.

    They're very cute and I hope the best for them. Enjoy them while they're little, fluffy, and cute. My Delawares are 4 weeks old and are at the big, grouchy, ugly stage. lol
