Hi all,
My chicks have been with me for 4 weeks and 4 days, they seem lively and jumpy! The thing what worries me is that I think they are too small for their age, should I be concerned or am I just imagining it?
Here's a pic...
(The dvd cases are there so they can't get out of their cage)

They look like very healthy 4 week olds. Not to worry!​

As long as your babies are spunky, they're fine. Their food feeder looks VERY dirty. There is poop all over the outside, and the bottom area, where they actually eat the food from is completely covered in feces as well. It's very critical to keep their food and water supply poop free. If not, they will get sick and can die.​

Here are what mine looked like at 4 weeks.
