    Welcome to BYC! Please make yourself at home and we are here to help.

    What breeds do you have?

    A few tips I can give is to make sure you are lowering the brooder temp by 5 degrees each week. It should have started out at 95 degrees and around week 4 it should be lowered enough that it is at room temp. Then you can remove the source of heat.

    Make sure they always have water. Apple cider vinegar in their water is great for boosting their immunity.

    Good luck and welcome!

    Welcome Luis, nice to meet you. If you want to meet chicken folks - put "Texas state thread" in the search box. Then you can post there and see if anyone lives near you.

Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your chicks.
