This is worse than being worried about a kid! Never had chicks before, but I've had parakeets- not closely related but they were at least birds. Anyway, I'm having info overload and not enough info. Please tell me- when can I give them fermented feed? And, how long do they stay on chick starter. The package says 16 weeks. that seems like a long time to me. for boredom, I've read other posts and am wondering, what does everyone use for roosts when their so little? and how high should I set it? My husband finds these questions humorous so I'm not asking him. I think I've got everything else covered. Thanks everyone!
