Hello~ I have a dozen chicks that are 5 days old and really unsure where to go from here. Could someone point me in the right direction as to what steps to follow. Right now they are in a cardboard box in my livingroom with non-medicated feed and water. We clean the box daily and my children handle them about twice a day for several minutes. We want them to be used to being handled, but don't want to over handle them either. The women we got them from said they are all 'supposed' to be pullets, but no promises. Which is fine, if not that saves us from buying a rooster down the road. Thanx for any advice you may have.
