Molasses in the water will help soften them up. Kind of acts like a stool softener. You can even trim some off the fluff off from around their buts. But try not to expose to much skin as the other chicks may start picking at it.

The babies are going outside today! They are fully feathered and flying. I am hoping my Cornish hen will accept them as coop mates. They will be seoerates in coops for now, but I hope to half them up when they get a tad bigger. They will have the same yard,but different coops at night. I'll take pics!

Well sad news, we had two fly into the sunset. One died of unknown causes, and the other died because it was challanged I believe. I'm not sure what was wrong with it, but she walked with her head crooked, and couldn't balance on roost. I put her on my hand about an inch off the ground and kinda jumped her off to see how she would land, and she flipped and landed straight on her back. She def rode the special bus. The other four are healthy and kicking! I introduced them to Waddles, my Cornish hen the other day, and she was mean to them. She got put back in her old coop by herself, and the babies got her new house. I will try again when they are big enough to defend themselves. The BO husband joked and said she would sure look good with a skewer up her butt. She does look tasty, but I already named her and made her a pet. Even if she is over a year old and still hasn't layed an egg lol!
