I'm so ignorant. This is my first experience with chickens. This chick is 4 weeks and a few days old and is a (hopefully) female feedstore Ameraucana (EE? I don't know which to call her at this point. She doesn't have green legs and they said she was a blue ameraucana, but it was a feedstore and they got her from a hatchery, but, they show birds and she made me look at the color of her legs and beak and blue feathering before I took her. I am perfectly happy if she is an EE, I just want pretty eggs) Anyway, she is such the little dustbather (had a major go at it right before this photo shoot. And she looks rather scruffy. Is it molting + bad feather day after dustbathing, or something I should be worrying about? She seems happy, hungry, chirpy, fly up on my shouldery, but I guess I just want to double check that she looks like a normal chick, just feathering out. Is it okay to use poultry dust on chicks this young? I have a cat, so I am a little leery of it, plus the idea of sprinkling pesticide all over my little chirpers just seems wrong. But, I don't want them to have to endure mites. They deserve to be happy healthy little birds.
