We are first time owners of a little chick that is 3 weeks old. We know that we need to get him company and quick. Now we have a few questions for those of you who know a lot about chickens:
- We have a heat lamp but are wondering if we need a fluorescent light to get him "daylight" since he is in the garage for right now.
- In my mind, I thought that a hen could take care of the chick like it was hers but it is my understanding that there is a risk of pekcing if we get hens. But then should we get younger chicks or a little bit older is okay?
