    My first delivery. They shipped today. My other four were about 2 weeks old when we got them. I want to make sure this is OK. It's temporary til I finish a larger one.

    The only thing it is missing is chicks. And not a big deal but the white light might be irritating to the chicks and can make them not sleep and could cause aggression (well, for pheasant anyway I think chicks too) A red light would work also.
    EDIT: how many are you getting?
