    I just got 4 ameraucana chicks that are about a week old.
    We lost our electrisity for a little bit and so i brought them inside and puta few hot water bottels by them while they were huddled together in the corner. Later that day when i saw them they were alot more finnicky than usual. any ideas???

    [​IMG] and welcome to the madness of being owned by chickens! How did the little ones fare last night!? Are they ok this morning? Watch them closely for pasty butt....poo gathering at thier little vents. This can and will kill them..and I have found, when they get chilled, they are more prone to pasty butt. Congrats on the new babies.
