    Today I visited Peachick to pick up 6 beautiful Blue and black copper marans chicks ! Here birds are wonderful and she has quite a variety. We also visited Will Marrow on Whitmore farm and his farm resembles a church it is so clean and well organized. I highly recommend both of these breeders ! Here is wills website http://www.whitmorefarm.com/

    I got to see both my chicks parents and grandparents which was great! I have two lighter blues, one that is either dark blue or black, and two blacks.

    here they are:

    oh forgot to say all of them are healthy one just has mild pasty but and I am treating it by feeding a bit of cornmeal (suggested by peachick) and I tried clearing its but with a warm paper towl. Any other suggestions?

    I usually add a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar with mother of vinegar (unfiltered) to a quart waterer when I have a pasty bum issue. It seems to help. I do it for a couple of days.

    If you only have regular, use that for now and see if it helps. The sediment kind I get in my regular grocery store (Ingles). Walmart doesn't seem to carry that here. Most grocery stores have organic stuff now, though.

    I will testify to Will Morrow's chicks. I got Ameraucanas from him this spring and they rock. I'll shop again in the spring when he's up and running again.
