    We just found one of our chicks is sick. We are now setting a quarantine for the little one. I'm worried on how she's going to eat or drink because she is weak.

    I thought of the waterer hamsters and pet birds use in the pet shops; it's like a nipple. Can I use that? Please hurry. My chick is coughing blood (kidding)......

    Thanks in advance

    Oh wait, no need to reply; the chick was fine.................hehe

    She was sleeping behind the waterer, which was on the corner.

    She's fine

    Those chicks sure can give us a scare, can't they?? LOL!

    Wait 'til you catch them dust bathing. They look like they are having seizures!

    Oh yes

    Once my chicks froze like little statues for a few seconds after they got surprised of me banging the door. But others say they experienced the same thing. It gave me a heart attack.

    Also I saw them bouncing their butts on the floor. It was like a chick dance. Strange creatures chicks are. My mom thinks they're crazy. I wish I can find some sand for them to bathe in. It sounds fun. [​IMG]

    Thanks for the concern!
