I have 13 baby chicks that should be arriving this week. We have converted half of our horse barn into a coop & nursery (th ough we still have stuff to do so excuze the messy pictures!) Are there any suggestions or thoughts about new baby chicks. I have six 20 week old chickens so I am not completley a newbie. Any thoughts, suggestions, or advice is greatly appriciated!
Picture one is our nursery coop, the heat lamp is connected to a digital thermostat that keeps the temperature between 97.2 - 98.2. Is this ok for the little ones?
The wires still have to be hung up but this is the basic setup. Paper towels for first day then pine shavings?
