Hi, I've had my first chicks for two days now. I wasn't planning on getting them so soon, so I'm not totally prepared. (I went by a feed store and got the chicken fever.) Right now I have them in a plastic storage bin in my living room. I'd like to let them out to run around in our yard, but I'm worried they'll bring fleas or chiggers back into my house. Does that happen? They are about 1 week old.
Also, they are on medicated feed. I've read about electrolyte drops and apple cider vinegar for their water. I don't think I can find unfiltered ACV anywhere around here. Would grocery store ACV be of any benefit? Do I need to to get electrolyte drops?
