She’s the smallest of the three but seems to be doing ok 🤞🏻Keeps up with the other two bombing about like loonies! Feet aren’t perfect but don’t seem to be holding her back at the moment. Hopefully she’ll do ok! Thank you for asking.

In other news I’m pretty sure the Wyandotte which was supposed to be gold, blue or buff laced is actually lavender :roll:

Initial feelings (they’re less than a week old so couldn’t really say what I’m basing this on) are that Duck is a girl and the other pekin is a boy. Don’t know about the Wyandotte- it’s much smaller with less of a comb than my other one at the same age, but it is already facing up to the bigger pekin. Time will tell!

Cheepers take 2 are 3 weeks old now. I still think I have one of each pekin and still don’t know about the Wyandotte (although if I had to say I’d go boy ☹️)

Crikey....yes it's quite obvious with the pekins isn't it - Duck (adorable name btw) has no comb!  Here's hoping the wyandotte turns out to be a girl though for you! They're all lovely!

The cheepers go to bed every night on top of the brooder. I go in before I go to bed and put them under it. They’re happy to go under it during the day.

Should I let them sleep on top? Will they be warm enough and if they get too cold will they go under while it’s dark?

They will usually self-regulate in terms of temperature, moving away form the heat if they are too hot and towards it if they fee cool. Having said that, they aren't best known for their common sense!

Hmm. That’s what I thought. They’re in our downstairs bathroom so they’re never going to get really cold, but they’re nowhere near fully feathered yet. I’ll probably keep putting them under until they have a covering of proper feathers and after that they can sort themselves out.
