1. kriz the farmer
    AS we all need a clean and livable home our chicks are also capable of thinking like
    FIRST OF LETS TALK ABOUT THE BASIC NEED
    !) HEAT LAMP

    WITHOUT HEAT LAMP ITS VERY DIFFICULT FOR A BABY CHICK TO SURVIVE THE REQUIRED TEMPERATURE FOR THE FIRST WEEK IS 95 F THEN DECREASE IT BY 5F EACH WEEK UNTIL THE CHICKS ARE 6 WEEK OLD TRY TO ENSURE THAT AFTER YOU REMOVE HEAT LAMP THE TEMP SHOULD NOT FALL BELOW 65F AND SHOULD NOT REACH MORE THEN 80F BECAUSE IT CAN CAUSE HEAT STROKE FOR CHICKS.
    2) WATERER AND FEEDER
    WELL IT IS GOOD TO HAVE WATERER AND FEEDER BUT YOU CAN ALSO USE NORMAL UTENSILS .MAKE SURE TO CLEAN THEM DAILY AND CHANGE THE WATER 2-3 TIMES A DAY ..IF YOUR CHICK LACKS OF ENERGY THEN YOU CAN MIX 2 TSP OF SUGAR IN THEIR WATER
    3)BEDDING
    WELL YOU SHOULD USE PINE SHAVING BUT YOU CAN ALSO USE SOIL AND IT SHOULD BE CHANGED ACCORDING TO NEED
    BESIDE THIS TO KEEP THEM HAPPY YOU CAN ALLOW THEM TO HAVE SHORT WALKS OUTSIDE BROODER WHEN THEY HAVE GROWN A LITTLE FEATHER

    WELL THE BROODER LOOKS TO BORING HOW ABOUT ADDING A MIRROR AND SOME ROOST BARS IN IT .TO BUST THE BOREDOM IN BROODER
