Hello, i just purchased 10 baby rir chicks which i will receive in april. I have a coop already. I have watched many youtube movies on how to raise them from chicks. It seems easy enough but what are the thing i need to know is which isnt stated in those movies. Thanks for your help

Hi Ryan and welcome to BYC! I am sure there will be lots to learn - if keeping chickens was is site would likely not exist - we'd all use one reference book ūüėĄ. Rather than try to pre-empt issues that may not have been covered in the sources you have consulted - I would simply encourage you to ask questions here on BYC - we all try to help each other here so there's no need to be shy.

Cheers

Hi welcome-byc.gif

Glad you could join the flock! Congratulations on your impending chicks frow.gif I'm sure you will enjoy them very much, it's lots of fun and very rewarding too. As drumstick said the learning centre is a great place. Lots of articles on all aspects of keeping your birds happy, safe and healthy. ~http://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Its nice today so im doing some work in the coop to get it ready for april. I have a question about the roosting bars. I have some left over 1" x 1" x 8' sqare pieces of wood left over from when my deck was built, are those to narrow? I have some 3' 2x3's laying around also. I really dont want to go out and by more lumber but i will if i have to.
Thanks.
