We bought our first flock of chicks. We got 6 Road Island reds 5 hens 1 rooster and 4 Buff Orringtons. For today we have them in a water tub "building a better pin tomorrow" for heat we have 1 250w light meditated starter feed and water.. is there anything else I need? It to my understanding that they need to be kept inside for 6-8 weeks? Should I let my kids handle the chicks their ages are 1,3&5? What should I expect or need to do for the next 6-8 weeks?
