Hi! So in about 5 days I get my very first chicks! I am getting 6 little chicks: 2 rhode island reds, 2 barred rocks, and 2 Orpingtons. They are all hens. I have done a lot of research about the breeds, their first 60 days, food etc. (BYC Learning Center was very helpful) And I am the type of person that is very organized, so I decided to make a calendar of all the things I need to do. I am writing down things like changing litter, lowering the temperature of the brooder, etc. What are the main things you guys (experienced chick owners) would put on the calendar. Thanks for all your help!
