    Yes. Very similar to chicks. 90* for the first 7 days, then decrease 5* each week. After 6-8 weeks and well feathered, they can tolerate down to 50*. Also, don't forget the extra niacin!

    typically how old are the chicks and ducklings at TSC? The guy there didnt know exactly how old they were. Gotta admit, the ducklings were a total impluse buy

    they should be ABOUT 3-4 days old, if it takes the typical 2-3 days to ship.

    Well, I took an impromptu trip to Sharpesburg MD today. I picked up some very cute mottled black Cochin bantams from MsBear!

    I sent the Blue Orp rooster with suspected split wing to the auction. I checked both wings thoroughly and he definatly had it on one side. That is okay, it made it easier to choose between Orps and LF Cochin!!!!

    Heather, I wish I had known. I was just in Grantville yesterday, too. Of course, we were going to pick up a car from the Salvage Direct lot...
