First time posting, not sure if I'm in right spot but I am picking up chicks in a couple days. My friend set up cardboard box with heat lamp, I'm terrified that it isn't safe or it won't be warm enough. Has anyone used this setup successfully? Are chicks as fragile as l literature says? Thank you for any info.
I have not used this set up (first time chicken mom, long time thread stalker) but you are sure to find good advice here, we certainly have.
Welcome to BYC!!!!
We went with the momma heating pad method from @Blooie's thread which is now a huge thing.
