Well....the fever is kicking in again. I am wanting to get a couple of silkies and thought about ordering a couple from my pet chicken. Only thing is, I am not to sure about ordering chicks. Plus they are only a day old it says when they actually ship them. How delicate are the chicks to raise at that young of an age? The first ones I got were already 4 weeks old when I got them. And I did not order them. They were locally picked up. I am just curious as to if anyone has bought from them before. Also I would order FEMALES. But HOW do they tell at such a young age the actual sex of the chick? Any input would be appreciated as to if they recommend another place, or their experience with my pet chicken. And since I am relatively new to chickens....only had chicks now for going on 3 weeks. Do you really think I am capable of caring for chicks that young? I don't work so that is not an issue as far as being here to take care of them daily. I'm just scared I will get them and end up hurting them or worse killing them due to something stupid on my part. And I don't want to do that. I'm just not sure how hardy chicks that young are. So please let me know your input and I will check back a little later before I decide if ordering is a good thing or I should wait. Thanks everyone!!
