My hubby and I are retired, but now raising our 13-year old grandson. For a science project, he brought home two day-old chicks. Chick Norris is all black, and Cornelius is light yellow with brown feathers coming in. They are now two weeks old. We do not know their breed or their gender. We are brooding them in a large clear plastic tub with puppy pads and some pine shavings and a warming lamp. We purchased a small coop for when they are ready to move out. I enjoy watching the little critters! This site has been very helpful for us newbies.
