    so i woke up this morning to a beauuutiful Barbanter chick [​IMG] (a couple days late) im so excited. and 5 of my Russian Orloffs (also a couple days late so far) are wobbling around. so hopefully they hatch soon! and my Millie Fleur egg has a pip! [​IMG] (a day or so early!) and some of my other bantam eggs (seramas, sebrights, old english, and silkies) seem to be wobbling around a little. or ive just been staring at them too long and am imagining things.. haha either way im excited [​IMG]

    Quote:no they dont need grit with their starter crumble you start giving them grit when you start giving them things that arent the starter eg like treats
