    These little guys hatched this last weekend. They're a lively bunch.

    Been busy around the house. Unpacked the new Brinsea Eco 20 you guys talked me into buying (y'all are probably getting kickbacks from Brinsea for advertising). We'll see if it is as magical as I've heard it is; it certainly looks all fancy.

    Quote:The bedding looks like "Yesterdays News" to me. That would also explain the chick color mix. I wonder who could pull that one off?

    Joe , why would the bedding "also explain the chick color mix " ?
    and how does it work with hatchlings? My chicks needed their bedding changed about 3 times a day before they were old enough to go outside...YUCK!

    The bedding is Cozy N Fresh, processed pine with carbon. For me, it works a lot better than pine shavings, lasts longer, feet stay clean and dry, and its non-toxic so they can nibble it and when it is time to change it, it goes in the compost pile. I hatched the chicks out of eggs I got from quaillady. They are gorgeous little birds, if I do say so myself, and I can't wait til they are grown up and feathered out. [​IMG]
