    My RIR chicks, some of them have lines on their heads. Does that mean anything?
    All 104 of our chicks we got yesterday are doing wonderfully. Have not lost one as of yet.
    Takes a while to go through 104 chicks checking bottoms but seems the most pasty bottoms are from our BO. Wonder why.

    Aw! you got new chicks! Lucky you [​IMG]

    They are soooo cute!

    I think the line on the head is just a RIR thing- the breed has them, I think. I just saw some pictures of RIR chicks.

    Or they might be some way to sex them? I'm not really sure. I am not an expert at these things.

    Hope someone else can help you!
