Hi everyone my name is Nicole.... I brand new to the chicken scene, as in this is night number 1 with them in my kitchen.... I think we have most of it under control but I do have a few questions if anyone would be willing to share your knowledge. First of all this pasty butt issue, I have already had to give one of the chicks a "bath" to remove a large clump of feces and happened to get pooped on in the process lol... What I am wondering is if it's ok to be getting them a bit wet to do this? I'm very nervous about the temperature issues and don't want to cause any issues. I also was wondering about how much the chicks should be handled? Mine are approx 4-5 days old so we are taking it easy on them right now but will it make them better with people or should I say better with my kids if they get used to them better? We have big plans for the coop to be finished once it gets a bit warmer up here in MN and we started small with a mixture of 5.... Hoping that we have all females but the store gave us 90% odds so we will see. Thank you again for giving me your time and knowledge I have learned so much reading your posts the past few weeks!
