    My first chicks arrived on wensday[​IMG] all alive and doing good, i,m so happy. I got 4- 2 jerseys they both don't seem to like to be held one does ok with it[​IMG] the other hates it [​IMG] then there's the ameruacuana the just closes his eyes and relaxes when i stoke his head [​IMG] and then the brave one that charges the cat when he gets to close to the cage and run to the cage door when ever i open it and tries to leap out. "RED" who is of course a RIR.[​IMG] I already wish i would have gotten some more ameruacunas(i know its spelled wrong),well i guess i have something to look forward to next spring!!!! I got one question though,
    I read somewhere that you can give them sand for grit!!!! is that true and would it be ok for the chicks once i start giving them there treats, and what would be better, mixed in the food ,or separate dish.???
