The new babies...

Posted by JorgensenStudio



We received some baby chickens on the 9th of January and I haven't been getting much sleep. They were given as a gag gift and the well meaning recipients did their best, but they seem to be very small for their age. They have reached the gangly look of the older chicks and have started to get in their feathers, but they are still the size of week old chicks.
There are a few bantams mixed in and they are really tiny. I have put them on a diet of mash to see if I can get them growing. I'll chart the progress here.
They have gotten used to being handled for the most part. My daughter gave them a crash course and would not leave them be for several days.
