So excited to report that the little chicks, who were such a sad sight only 10 days ago are now vigorous and thriving!
I have learned to pay close attention to their behavior when I bring them home, and to make certain they are drinking first before introducing food. I also plan to purchase my chicks a month later, if possible, and not to get any until I have room to take on 4 or more. Chicks seems to do better in higher numbers. They are flock creatures, after all. I will do as one woman said: “Always watch to choose the most active chicks.”
And once again I have learned that it is good not to give up, and that we can start over any time.
