I picked up five Delaware chicks on Monday From Cyn (speckledhen). They were hatched on Jan 28th. After all this talking to her it was great to finally meet her and Tom (DH)! These are straight run and a bunch of fun, my first experience with Dels. They don't want not to be held! Especially "Jess", who stayed in my pocked the whole ride home. Hoping she's a pullet. Day one... In the brooder... they loooooove to eat! Chick #1, Jess Chick #2 Chick #3 Chick #4 Chick #5 They are all wonderfully happy and healthy. They're being raised on medicated chick feed 18% protein. Cyn, I actually realized the animal does have furry ears so changed it to a hippo.
