    It was wonderful, yesterday a few of the girls flew up on my hand and stayed. So did some of the boys. One in particular comes right to my hand. I have four yellow chicks turning white. Maybe they are white barred rocks or leghorns. They were extras in the delivery from Mcmurray Hatcherie. The poop smell is getting worse.Whew!

    I only named one so far. Rosie is smaller and has a limp leg. I cut a shoe out of plastic and taped it on and spread her toes out. I secured her leg to the other leg. She hobbles around, but feeds and drinks from the chicken nipples with the rest of them. She seems so much smaller than her peers. I also gave her some of the electrolyte mix Sally offered. I saw her flap her wings and is trying to get some air time. Man, I do love these little chicks.

    sand will work as grit, I use sand now only because I start to mix the dirt from the coop in with the sand about 2 weeks before they go outside, just to slowly expose them to the dirt since I do not feed medicated feed.

    I'm not even going to try to catch up.

    Getting rid of my lav orp rooster today, and my last two SLW. Those two we part of the batch that started this all. Time for someone else to catch the bug! They are taking 5 mixed chicks, too. Now I have room for more! Oh, thats right, incubator is full! Silly me.
    Have a great day everyone!
