1. Are they being fed well and growing at a rate to be banded at about 5 days? These German Roller chicks are being well fed and growing very fast.
2. What is their skin color? The overall skin color on the chick on the right is slightly more red than I like for non color fed chicks. (The photo is more red than the chicks look visually.)
What else should be noted and what action needs to be taken?
Please Send in your answer and I will continue and finish this post tomorrow. (only right answers are posted, so give it a shot!)
Correct! Too Much Protein! Offer peas and dry plain nestling food and start on Dr. Rob Marshall KD Powder. Note red color on left chick skin and rump. Skin shows some creasing and dehydration. Wash and carefully remove the thin invisible lacquer layer that is threatening to plug the vent.
