Hello, I'm new to this forum and this is my first post here My brother recently bought 6 chicks from a silly candy discount on the local farm shop (well they're now 5 as he took them out one morning and a GIANT sea-gull landed and took one of them LOL) anyways I'm now taking care of them . And I was wondering about 3 things ; -Is the brooding lamp necessary , because I'm putting them near the heater and it seems fine to me..they're not spattered all over the place or shrunk near it "I adjusted it for them" -What is the difference between "Pasty butt" and that skin piece that comes when they're born? -they seem to appreciate human presence (Once someone is near them they all go to his side for treat maybe ?)but they DO NOT LIKE being held or any physical interaction as a matter of fact is this normal ? Oh and how much space do they need ?
