    Hello and welcome to BYC [​IMG] I see you have posted in the Breed/Gender section. Someone there should be able to help you. But it may be better if you can put more pics of them up once they are fully feathered as small chicks can be hard to sex and breed wise many of them look the same!

    Hi everyone, I have had two great hatches on my chicks but am having issues with my baby ducks. They are terribly frightened one ran into the wall, seemed stunned, lingered for an hour with his partner then died. I am heartbroken. Need advice

    Welcome to BYC - sexing your chicks will be far easier and more accurate once they are older.

    Thank you everyone for the greetings I got into chickens because I love animals and I have had the weirdest pets my dad have ducks so I start being interested in different kinds of pets
    My chicks are very loving and very interesting to play with but I'm very new at this I don't know what to really say so I guess I can start with their names an what they are:

    The Sugar Rush Gang[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    My Araucana: Hen [​IMG]3-5 weeks old
    Vanillope Von Schweetz

    My Black Jersey Giant: Hen[​IMG]3-5 weeks old
    Twix Snowanna Winterdrop

    My Silkie: I don't know I think its a rooster[​IMG]lil ones 1-2 weeks old
    Taffy Kotton Kandie

    My might be Wihte Rock:Don't know yet but i think that its a rooster [​IMG]4-5 weeks old
    Peeps Lemonhead Woodstock

    My feathered foot Bantam: Hen [​IMG]lil ones 1-2 weeks old
    Karamel Butter-Scotch

    Yes they have middle and lastnames lol I call them the Sugar Rush Gang
    I was watching that movie Wreck-it Ralph lol But Peeps was my first I called him peeps because thats all he did was peep peep peep
    but the others was so sweet like kandie so I named them after sweet treats lol
    They all get along great but because they have each other sometimes they don't follow me because they are trying to get into everything I made there cage up of things I found in petsmart I think that I did a good job give me your opinions I will love to have them also if you can give me some advice I will gladly appreciate it

    [​IMG]So I'm happy to be a part of BYC [​IMG]
