i have had my chicks for a little over a week now. I have read lots of info on chickens and I'm overwhelmed... What do I need to do to get started right. Do they need shots? Is play sand ok for them? What is the heat light schedule... I leave it on all the time when do I start shutting it off at night? They are in our living room which is air conditioned so it can be chilly for the baby's . I feed them natures best organic feed and probiotic and electrolyte water. Do you like DE in your pen to control mites? When can I put them outside? I got wazine when do they need to be wormed... I know lots of questions... I know some of this stuff is a personal preference but I'm curious what you do to keep healthy happy birds. Thank you so much for any input!
