In the Brooder
- Jul 7, 2012
I am receiving my first baby chicks sometime between Sunday 4/21-4/24 I figure they will be here early monday morning. They have all been vaccinated for Marek's and Coccidosis....unfortunately my carpentry skills are not so good and when I set the posts and floor, we (thanks to DH) found out because of one corner post being larger that it is not level and not square, and some of the other older posts were dry rotted. We have a 7 x 9 concrete pad and he had decided that we will build there. We live in a SMALL house so I am praying we get the coop built soon! What kind of starter feed would you recommend, as I live in NE GA well north of gainesville, not far from commerce or cornelia. Help! And do they need oystershell to start with?
