Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best, Healthiest Chicks!! My chicks were bought online almost a month ago and I could not be more pleased. Chicks were a couple of days old, looked healthy were clean, and were shipped in the best packaging. All chicks survived and are thriving. I have always had success with TSC and recommend them to everyone!

Would they tolerate a cold Vermont winter? I use heat lamps when the night temp is 10-15 degrees.

Asked by: Cara12
Yes, all breeds can handle hot and cold weather. As long as the birds are fully feathered and juvenile or adult they will generate enough heat to keep warm if kept in an area that is out of the direct elements and wind. Heat lamps can be used as you mention

How can you tell the males from females...ours are about 15 weeks old and we think we may have a Male but not sure we have 2 that are much more developed and larger than the rest of the flock.

Asked by: KimSantos

Are they broody?

Asked by: Aurelia
Sapphire Gem do not have the personality of broodiness. They are generally known to be an active breed
