In my experience, I've grown up around chickens, roosters, hens, & many farm animals. Baby chicks are much friendlier if you hold them alot when they are little. We've got 9 young chickens & 8 chicks. I'm curious, when do we switch from chick food to adult chicken food? At what age do we start giving them electrolytes in their water? Are there any "Have to's" for continued good health?
