Hi everyone, I'm new here and I just got some baby chicks last night! 4 bantams. I thought one of them was going to keel over within the first hour, he(she?) is the runt of the group and just seemed weak and sick. I'm pretty sure the feed store didn't have them at the right temperature though, he stopped chirping every time my husband cupped his hands! After separating him for a while, giving him some food/water and heat, he perked up and we put him back in with the others. They have all been happily scratching around ever since! I feel like I must be doing it right with the food/bedding/temperature because they aren't huddled for warmth nor are they trying to get away from the lamp, they aren't pecking at eachother or chirping loudly and they just seem content. Yay! I will add a photo of them if I can figure out how!
