I have new chicks. *sigh* I went up there just to get a couple of rabbit waterer conversion kits (lets you use a 2 liter bottle) I had bought some chicken nipple waterers and used bottles.....nobody can get enough water. So I had picked up one of these 2liter to rabbit waterer kits, and the chicks are doing great with that one. So I ran up to get a couple more, for the other chick brooder. I always stop at the tanks to see what's in, and there was some VERY overcrowded tanks, I was upset about it...then I saw chicks running around with blood all over them....frantically trying to get away from the other chicks who were pecking and pulling at the bloody spots. Just happened that the manager walks up and asks if I wanted 50 chicks, told her no but I definately wanted the three chicks who were bloodied. As we got those out, we looked over and there was a red sex link being trampled in another tank..she asked if I wanted it too. So they gave me all 4 chicks, I suggested they split up at least the one tank that was overcrowded with chicks at least a week old, into one of the spare tanks they had sitting there empty. Got the lil guys home, the red sex link died within an hour..the other 3 are white leghorns..they're sooo tired. Gave them food and water and a nice warm quiet spot to rest. I didn't even ask if they were straight run or not, I didn't care...it's the first time I've been upset by the way the chicks are cared for at our store.
