    Hi from North Carolina! We have 5 ( we lost one just last night) baby chicks. They are at least 4 weeks old but am unsure of exactly their ages.

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    I am so sorry you lost a baby. [​IMG] Not all of them do make it to adulthood. I hope the rest are ok. If you lose any more, suspect Coccidiosis at this age. Causes them to go off their food and water, huddle in the corner all fluffed up. Sometimes there is blood in the poop. Corid from the feed store will take care of this ailment.

    If you have any specific questions, feel free to ask around the forums.

    Good luck with your new chicks and welcome to our flock!
