Weekly Chick Update

Well it has now been a little over a week since I got the new chicks.  At 9 days old they are doing wonderfully.  A few of them had a small problem with "pasty butt" which was kinda of annoying.  This was remedied easily with a little yogurt to give them some beneficial bacteria in their gut.  It seems to have disappeared and all the chick are happy and healthy.  They are all growing quickly and are very active.  It is exciting to see there new feathers starting to com in already.  It looks like they will grow into a very beautiful flock.

  1. They grow up so fast don't they? Seems not long ago they were just eggs.
