    How often do you check on baby chicks?

    When they are brand new I check several times a day. Then after I get everything just perfect with the lamps etc. and feel like they are OK and stable I check them twice a day.

    They have to be checked that often because if they fill their waterers and feeders with shavings and it isn't caught, they will die of no water/food. Also the washing off of the bottoms with pasty butt.
