Raising chicks can be an exciting and rewarding experience. It can also be an educational and challenging task. To get the most enjoyment out of growing your poultry, here are just a few tips we can provide you.
Before the Chicks Arrive
Be prepared. Chicks have a lot of requirements that must be provided to them. Make sure your brooder house is ready. Have your bedding, feeders, waterers, feed and source of heat set up and ready to go.
Bedding, we recommend pine shavings, must be provided for your chicks. Your bedding should be at least two inches deep. Keep your bedding dry and change as necessary to provide the chicks with a clean growing environment.
