    [​IMG] Here's my newest babies! I've never had a healthier bunch. I made a midnight run to pick them up, so I guess I'm officially crazy. Not one pastey butt in the bunch. YEAH! [​IMG]

    Man, I love stripes on a baby chick.

    My Brother's response to "Aren't they cute?" was,
    "What do they look like when they grow up?" I reminded him of a neighbor's quineas to which he scrunched up his face and said, "Eww Jeez." I quess you can't please them all. [​IMG]

    Nice! I have really considered guineas...

    Right now I'm also using my rubber stock tank on the back porch with a wire cover. Got 24 week-old Delaware chicks getting feathers already! Not sure how long this tank will hold them and not sure what I'll do when I have to put them into two groups... cross that bridge later.

    Your keets are kute! [​IMG]

    You will need to take pictures more than once a week as they change so quickly. I have some that are now three weeks old and they are finally going out into their pen this morning. I can't wait! [​IMG] They are quite the stinky bunch and I only have thirteen. [​IMG] You have quite a handful there! Keep us posted with pictures.

    No joke! I do have my hands full.[​IMG] I change the towels out of the bottom 2Xs a day, not that you can tell... On a brighter note they love music and N.P.R. They are in a stock tank that's 6ft by 2'6". I think that they will outgrow it quickly. I'm glad someone else is using a stock tank. I just didn't want to use anything else I had or build new. I almost didn't post pics because of the lime scale on the sides of the tank but oh well. Keets are smaller than chicks but more solid IMO.

    Quote:Cindy, did you mean you have two 4 week old chicks?? 24 week chicks would be about full grown so I think that was an error?? [​IMG]

    How cute!!! Keets are one of the most precious poultry chicks, in my opinion. I'd love to get some guinea, but not sure I could handle it at this point in time. Unfortunate because I really do love them.

    Quote:Maybe 24 1-week olds? That's how I originally read it.
