    How sweet! [​IMG]

    A word to the wise, here. You shouldn't put chicks on newspaper because they can get spraddle leg from it's slippery surface. I didn't know this when I first started and had my chicks on newspaper, so I wanted to pass that along to you. [​IMG] Paper towels are much better! Just FYI!

    What kind of sweet babies did you get? I have a few chicks from Ideal that I'm trying to identify.
    Thanks, Sonja

    P.S try paper towel or an old towel for now

    They are silver laced wyandottes about 1 week old. My 4 year old thinks they look like flying skunks, but he loves them
