If you are adopting baby chicks here is a couple of tips. I have to drive 3 hrs or more to get baby chicks and since it is still cold in our area I get hand warming pads to put under a chick sized quilt to keep chicks warm on way home. also in the right hand corner of this pic you will see the plastic water deal, I always put a dish under that to keep the pen dry. if you use a small plastic dish to feed chicks be sure it is weighted down so it doesn't flip on top of chicks. congrats. feel free to leave your tips!
